Abstract:

Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is quite a common disease in Odisha. Because of lack of awareness, low socio economy status and scarcity of trained health care professionals in tribal areas, such patients do not get a proper treatment in time. As many a times this disease runs an indolent course, the patients do not give due importance to their symptoms and treat the symptoms as only a nuisance leading to a false security. Self-treatment and inadequate and improper treatment by non- qualified persons leads to high bacterial resistance and hence non response to conventional antibiotics in the disease occurs. A study was conducted in Department of E.N.T. & Head and neck Surgery- S.L.N. Medical College, Koraput, between November 2017 TO October 2019 to gain a knowledge base about different patterns of presentations of CSOM in tribal based area so that a proper scientific approach can be taken up for their proper management as well as a policy change can take place for a better outcome. The patients were given information about their disease as well as the undertaken study and written informed consent was obtained prior to the study. CSOM is found to be prevalent in the second to third decades of life in people belonging to lower socio- economic status, mostly in male presenting with complaints of discharge from ear and reduced hearing along with this very few presented with features of complications like pain in ear and other neurological signs. CSOM being a very common disease in all age group in this area of Orissa that leads to much morbidity in poor patients. This study will guide health care professionals and policy makers to formulate a sound policy to alleviate this common and at times preventable disease.
