Abstract

Background: The possible association between otitis media in pregnancy (OMP) and structural birth defects, that is, congenital abnormalities (CAs), in their offspring has not been studied. Methods: The data set of the Hungarian Case-Control Surveillance of Congenital Abnormalities, 1980 and 1996, was evaluated. Results: There were 58 (0.25%) and 55 (0.14%) of 22 843 cases and 38 151 controls with mothers who had OMP, respectively. There was association of OMP and a higher risk of ear CA. Conclusions: A possible explanation for the association of OMP with higher risk of ear CA may be some morphological deviation of the inner ear.
