• A further miniaturization of the lens telescopes (Hopkins Rod) has resulted in a telescope (length, 6 cm; diameter, 2.7 mm) that is suitable for pediatric otoscopy. The adaptation of otoscopic specula, a lightweight motor-driven remote flash camera, and movie and video photography to this telescope has resulted in a system that represents a significant advance in the examination of the ear. In this study, we document ear diseases in children with the use of color photographs.
