Correspondence:  Se-Hyung Kim,
Ear discharge (otorrhea) could arise from various sources (i.e. external ear, middle ear, or mastoid cavity) and could be due to a number of etiologies. Diagnostic considerations and subsequent treatment plans are generally directed by the type (i.e. clear, mucoid, purulent, or bloody), the nature (i.e. acute, chronic, or pulsatile) and the source of the otorrhea, the age of the patient, and the presence of other symptoms such as otalgia, hearing loss, associated systemic disease, or symptoms. The objectives of this study are to review the different types of otorrheato and to introduce an update on the management of ear discharge.
