CSOM is estimated to have a global incidence of 31 million episodes per year, disproportionately affecting people at socio-economic disadvantage. Many people who are affected by CSOM do not have good access to modern primary healthcare, let alone specialised ear, nose and throat care. Given this evidence need, Cochrane ENT have prioritized the production of systematic reviews on non-surgical treatments for CSOM. This up-to-date evidence is in this Cochrane Library Special Collection.
