Vertigo in otitis media with effusion in children
Artur Niedzielski, Grażyna Mielnik-Niedzielska

Vertigo is not a common symptom in pediatric populations;
however, it is more frequent than previously thought.
It is believed that the most common cause of the vertigo in
children are the diseases of the middle ear. Otitis media with
effusion (OME) frequently involves dysfunction of the vestibular
system and causes balance abnormalities during everyday activities.
Children with OME score poor in sporting games and
they avoid physical exercises. Removal of the effusion results
in improvement of hearing and mitigates balance disturbances.
Considering possible delayed effects of prolonged vestibular
dysfunction, such as impaired motor functions and coordination,
additional examination of balance should be a part of routine
clinical evaluation.
