Abstract: Acute otitis media is a condition affecting all age groups, particularly children, which commonly presents to the General Practitioner Although correctly diagnosed by the majority of doctors, otitis media is very commonly treated indiscriminately with wide-spectrum antibiotics. This is undoubtedly playing a major role in the increasing emergence of resistant micro-organisms in the Maltese community. We hereby seek to provide a comprehensive guide for the judicious prescription of antimicrobial treatment in acute otitis media for the Maltese Islands.
