Introduction: Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is a chronic infection in the middle ear with perforation of the tympanic membrane and persistent or intermittent secretion from the middle ear which is more than two months. It causes a pathological condition in the ear which results in limited hearing function in a person and will affect the quality of life of the patients. Quality of life assessment is carried out to assess the patient's condition and an instrument is needed to be able to evaluate the condition of CSOM patients. Currently, there are several questionnaires that can be used to assess the quality of life of people with CSOM. One of them is the Chronic Otitis Media Outcome Test (COMOT-15) which is a valid measuring tool to subjectively assess the quality of life of people with CSOM.
Methods: This study was an observational study with a cross sectional study design.
Results: There was a difference in quality-of-life scores between CSOM patients with and without cholesteatoma types with mean score 26.87 (95% CI 22.28- 31.47) (p<0.001).
Conclusion: There was a difference in quality-of-life scores between CSOM patients with and without cholesteatoma types at Sanglah General Hospital, Denpasar.
