In a pilot study 29 cases of suppurative otitis were treated with ciprofloxacin. Acceptable clinical results were obtained in case of chronic otitis media without cholesteatoma and in case of otitis externa. Cholesteatoma and mastoid cavity cases gave no satisfactory results. Guidelines are proposed to define the specific indications and place of this drug in suppurative otitis.
