Abstract

Objective/Hypothesis: Bordetella pertussis is an unusual cause of otitis media with effusion. We report a case in a neonate. Study Design: Case report. Methods: A case is presented. Results: A 1-month-old infant girl was admitted because of respiratory distress and subsequently was found to have pertussis. On examination she was noted to have a middle ear effusion. Myringotomy was performed for culture. Culture confirmed B pertussis. We were unable to find a previous report of B pertussis otitis media. Conclusion: Bordetella pertussis has been identified in the middle ear effusion of an infant with the pertussis syndrome.
