�e COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing, and new variants continue to emerge. Various examination methods and sampling specimens are continuously being developed and published. �e standard for sampling is in the nasopharynx. However, in children, this is often uncomfortable and at risk of eliciting complications. �erefore, it is necessary to look for other alternative sampling sites such as �uid from the middle ear. Scienti�c evidence shows that the middle ear can be a place for the attachment and growth of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Currently, to the best of the author’s knowledge, there have been no publications on middle ear discharge as a sample for the determination of the diagnosis of COVID-19. Based on this, the authors would like to explore the possibility of middle ear discharge for COVID-19 test material. A narrative review on the use of middle ear discharge as a potential diagnostic specimen for COVID-19 was conducted. �e searches were conducted in the PubMed and ProQuest databases.
