To collect and analyse data from the published literature concerning the rare condition necrotising otitis externa, in order to formulate a prognostic scoring model based on signs and symptoms.
Retrospective data collection from published literature, and binary logistic regression analysis of the effect on outcome of identified signs and symptoms.
Six factors were identified as prognostic of a poorer outcome, including facial nerve involvement, additional cranial nerve involvement, non-cranial nerve neurological involvement, extensive granulations (or oedema) in the external auditory canal, bilateral symptoms and aspergillus species as the causative organism. A four-point scoring model based on these findings is presented.
A novel, systematic method of data analysis was utilised to construct a prognostic scoring model for necrotising otitis externa. This will better equip clinicians to treat this potentially fatal condition.
