Ear infections are frequent in children, as a consequence of disease in the upper airway; and also are one of the main causes for medical care. Otalgia, otorrhea and hypoacusis are the predominant signs and symptoms, whose treatment not only will decrease morbidity, but also avoid complications and sequelae such as hearing impairment, the most important cause for deafness in our country. Knowledge, care and prevention will prevent complication that threaten not only function but also life itself; situation that may be completely helped. Timely treatment reduces morbid-mortality and improves quality of life.

Key words: Ootitis media, Otalgia, disease in the upper airway, hypoacusis.
