Glue Ear In Children

Glue Ear (otherwise known as Otitis Media with Effusion or Serous Otitis Media) is a common medical condition which affects hearing. This can result in stunted learning at school and social difficulties.


The ear is comprised of three parts: the outer ear canal, the middle ear space (where infections occur) and the inner ear where the nerves and balance are located. The upper throat and back of the nasal cavity or Nasopharynx is connected to the middle ear via a canal called the Eustachian tube.

If the Eustachian tube becomes blocked – usually due to a common cold – the middle ear will fill with fluid rather than air. After a while this fluid can become thick and glue like. Your child will not be able to hear properly if they have glue ear. The condition affects 8 out of 10 children at least once before their tenth birthday.
