From: Identification and characterization of the bacterial etiology of clinically problematic acute otitis media after tympanocentesis or spontaneous otorrhea in German children

  Otorrhoea N = 76 Tympanocentesis N = 24 Total N = 100

Staphylococcus aureus 8 62 1 50 9 60
  1. N = number of episodes.
  2. % = n/Number of episodes with available results x 100.
  3. Note: More than one other bacteria was detected for some samples.
