Acute otitis media is still one of the most common infectious diseases among children. A review of the topic is made giving emphasis to the present therapeutic conduct after the appearance of complex mechanisms of bacterial resistance created by the microorganisms causing the disease. As in every infectious disease, we place our hopes on the emergence of a vaccine with a positive impact on our infantile population. In this sense, a reflection is made on the use of the heptavalent antipneumococcic vaccine (Prevnar) and its repercussion on this disease.
