The reliability of tympanometry in the detection of MEE using myringotomy as a reference has been assessed in numerous studies but mainly in children with OME and those who are referred for tympanostomy tube placement (Brookhouser, 1998). It is widely accepted that a type A curve predicts the absence of MEE, and in the few cases in which myringotomy has revealed MEE, the amount has been subtle (Koivunen et al, 1997). The sensitivity and specificity of a type B curve vary between 60 and 90%, being higher in OME than in AOM populations.
