Dr. Jessica Kaplan, a favorite San Francisco pediatrician in Noe Valley who has been known to say that ‘the CellScope Oto’ has replaced her traditional otoscope’ shared her AOM Case file with us this week.
This tympanic membrane pic of an 18 month old in group care who had been well for many months, although had an infant history of several episodes of bronchiolitis and wheezing, presented on well child exam with no complaints. The child had been mildly congested and upon inspection of the ear canal, Dr. Kaplan found this ear ailment. She first instructed the family to give the child oral antihistamines but the ear findings persisted. The child was ultimately treated with antibiotics and the acute Otitis Media was resolved.
Thank you, Dr. Kaplan for snapping a pic with your CellScope Oto and sharing information about the case.
