Pharyngitis and otitis media are among the most common infections of childhood. Both conditions are associated with a range of complications, lead to considerable morbidity and place a burden on healthcare systems. Antibiotics are the current mainstay of treatment for these infections, with β-lactams being the agents most commonly used. This review examines a range of issues in the management of pharyngitis and otitis media, particularly recent developments in antimicrobial therapy.
