Is Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media a Neglected Tropical Disease?

 The World Health Organization has identified chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) in an expanded list of neglected conditions (beyond its list of 17 neglected tropical diseases). The authors here address CSOM's potential status as a true neglected tropical disease given its prevalence across the indigent populations of developing countries, and its influence both from a medical and socioeconomic perspective.

The authors of this study created a deterministic model simulated the births, deaths and movement of tsetse confined to a strip of riverine vegetation composed of segments of habitat in which the tsetse population was either self-sustaining, or not sustainable unless supplemented by immigrants.
