1975Stuart JE, Quayle CJ, Lewis AN, 'Follow up studies of aboriginal children with ear disease and hearing loss at Cherbourg (Queensland)', Medical Journal of Australia, 1 38-40 (1975)

A random sample of 100 Aboriginal primary school children originally examined in February, 1970, was followed up in February, 1971, and February, 1972. Over this period, the incidence of hearing loss dropped from 41% to 23%. Most of the improvement occurred in the younger children, and, while this could be attributed to treatment in a few cases, the majority of children appeared to improve spontaneously. A complete school grade of 37 children aged six years in 1970 was retested 6 times over a period of 3 yr. Again, there was a general improvement, from 60% incidence of hearing loss in 1970 to 22% in 1972. Most of this improvement was spontaneous. During the 3 yr of observation (1970, 1971, 1972), 30 Aboriginal children underwent surgery including myringotomy, myringoplasty and mastoidectomy. Operative successes and failures in these children are discussed.
