Resumen

SANCHEZ SEGURA, Miriam de la C et al. Evaluation and immunological therapeutics in chronic suppurative otitis media without cholesteatoma. Rev Cubana Hematol Inmunol Hemoter [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.3, pp.175-183. ISSN 0864-0289.

Forty patients suffering from chronic suppurative otitis media without cholesteatoma were studied and applied a surgical treatment (closed technique). The results of the immunological tests and the clinical progression of 20 patients under pre-operative immunological treatment were analyzed for 6-12 months and compared with those of 20 patients operated on without previous treatment. Patients' recovery was followed up for a year after surgery. The most frequent immunological disorder was cell immunity deficiency (65%) with or without associated humoral fault. Only one patient did not recover in a satisfactory way after having received a previous immunological treatment in contrast with 11(55%) of 20 patients operated on without such treatment. Immunological deficiency contributes to an unsatisfactory development of chronic suppurative otitis media without cholesteatoma, so a previous immunological treatment may help to the success of the surgical treatment
