    Correct answer:

    Otitis media acuta.

    OMA can occur on its own or in combination with an upper espiratory tract infection. The most common pathogens are H. Influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, streptococci, pneumococci or staphylococci.

    The patients – mainly children – usually develop symptoms at the end of the day. Only prescribe antibiotics in seriously ill patients or in case of risk factors for other complications (e.g. meningitis).
