Abstract

In 177 children living in an area with high 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) coverage who had acute otitis media (AOM) complicated with spontaneous tympanic membrane perforation (STMP), Streptococcus pneumoniae was identified in the middle ear fluid of 48 (27.1%) subjects, with 37 (77.1%) cases caused by non-PCV13 serotypes.
