A limited study for the experimental induction of pneumococcal otitis media is presented. It is a useful model to study the effects of otitis media in the implanted and nonimplanted cochlea of the cat. Pneumococcal otitis media caused minor pathological changes in two nonimplanted cochleas and more widespread changes together with significant loss of neural elements in two implanted cochleas. However, the small number of animals used in this study did not allow us to distinguish between the effects of electrode insertion trauma, infection, or the combination of both.
