1,011 Possible Causes for Increased Susceptibility to Infections, Otitis Media

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    […] to infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] AIMS: To assess the equivalence of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and placebo in the prevention of acute otitis media in children at high risk of acute otitis media who develop[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The presence of upper respiratory infection is an additional factor increasing the susceptibility of small children to hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Shwachman Syndrome

    Affected individuals with neutropenia may also have additional abnormalities believed to result from an increased susceptibility to infections.[rarediseases.org] media), and skin infections.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with SDS experience recurrent viral, bacterial and fungal infections, including otitis media, bronchopneumonia, osteomyelitis, skin infection and septicemia.[signavitae.com]

  • Viral Upper Respiratory Tract Infection

    Consequently, external agents such as allergens and pollutants that damage airway epithelium could increase susceptibility to infection and/or lead to more-severe infections[intechopen.com] We determined the interactions between nasopharyngeal microbial pathogens and commensals during viral upper respiratory tract infection (URI) and acute otitis media (AOM)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] media.[utmb.influuent.utsystem.edu]

  • Moraxella Catarrhalis

    M. catarrhalis reduces antiviral defense functions of bronchial epithelial cells, which may increase susceptibility to viral infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Moraxella catarrhalis is a Gram-negative bacterium, exclusively present in humans and a leading causative agent of otitis media (OM) in children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Further, the data suggest a role for CEACAM1 and CEACAM5 in the phenomenon of increased host susceptibility to bacterial infection upon viral challenge in the human respiratory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Common Cold

    susceptibility to infections.[ingentaconnect.com] Some patients may present with complications like otitis media, chronic bronchitis, otitis media. Aggravation of reactive airways in susceptible patients.[symptoma.com] Principi, Effectiveness of a Propolis and Zinc Solution in Preventing Acute Otitis Media in Children with a History of Recurrent Acute Otitis Media, International Journal[dx.doi.org]

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

    Conclusions Severe hypochlorhydria generated by PPI use leads to bacterial colonisation and increased susceptibility to enteric bacterial infection.[dx.doi.org] To describe one patient with a puzzling therapy-resistant unilateral chronic otitis media, analyze his diagnosis, and describe three similar patients with the same symptoms[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Conversely, no conclusive clinical evidence supports a link between gastroesophageal reflux and other supraesophageal problems, including otalgia, recurrent otitis media,[emedicine.com]

  • Otitis Media

    Whilst this is often accompanied by a feeling of relief as the pressure inside the ear is released, this can lead to excessive draining of the ear and increases susceptibility[news-medical.net] Recurrent otitis media can be defined as three or more new episodes of acute otitis media within a 6 months period.[symptoma.com] The reduced efficacy of CRM197‐PCV7 in children already with a history of AOM may be explained by an increased susceptibility to subsequent infections, not only with non‐vaccine‐type[doi.org]

  • Acute Otitis Media

    This increased susceptibility is likely due to the younger infant and child’s shorter eustachian tube, its horizontal position, their limited exposure to both bacterial and[coreem.net] METHODS: A PubMed search was completed in Clinical Queries using the key term "acute otitis media".[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute otitis media (AOM) is the inflammation of the middle ear secondary to viral or bacterial infection.[symptoma.com]

  • Common Variable Immunodeficiency

    susceptibility to infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common signs and symptoms of common variable immunodeficiency include: Frequent infections of the respiratory tract, especially otitis media, pneumonia and sinusitis Bronchiectasis[dermnetnz.org] Due to the complex treatment, exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, otitis media and, herpes occured less often and less severely.[f1000research.com]

  • Acute Respiratory Infection
