Diffuse acute otitis externa (OEAD) is one of the most frequent cases recorded in Otorhinolaryngological emergency room. The main symptoms include: acute otalgia, feeling of ear fullness, itching, hearing impairment, sometimes fever. Otoscopy is the basic part of the diagnosis. First-line treatment involves topical antibiotic eardrops with or without a steroid. Clinicians should prescribe a non-ototoxic preparation when the patient has a known or suspected perforation of the tympanic membrane. Systemic antibiotics should not be prescribed in the first stage of the therapy unless the patient is at risk of severe course of the disease.
