Correlation between cow’s milk protein allergy and otitis media: a systematic review
Karen Amanda Soares de Oliveira, Marina Tomaz Esper, Morgana Lívia de Oliveira, Marise Helena Cardoso Tofoli, Melissa Ameloti Gomes Avelino

  • The correlation between cow’s milk protein allergy and otitis media has been investigated in recent decades.

  • Allergic inflammation in the nasal mucosa is associated with Eustachian tube dysfunction, contributing to otitis media.
