Hello. I want to ask, is it true that people with OMA can cause vertigo? And where does the liquid that comes out of the ear come from? Thank you

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question
Acute otitis media (OMA) is an acute inflammatory condition that occurs in the middle ear. Severe forms of complications from OMA that are not handled optimally include intracranial complications (brain tissue) and intratemporal (inner ear). These complications occur due to the spread of severe pathogenic bacterial infections directly to the surrounding organs.
In cases where the infection extends to the inner ear, it can cause a condition called labyrinthitis which is characterized by complaints of spinning dizziness or vertigo. This happens because the inner ear functions as a balance system for the body. When the function is disrupted, vertigo complaints can appear.
While intracranial complications can cause inflammation of the meningens membrane or what is referred to as meningitis. Labyrinthitis is more common in chronic otitis media, but can also occur in OMA even though it is less common.
Associated with fluid from the ear, the fluid is formed from an inflammatory process where exudation of blood serum occurs into the extracellular space due to the release of inflammatory mediators in the blood.
That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam
