    An inflammatory disease of the middle ear known as otitis media with effusion is defined by the presence of endotympanic fluid without any indication of an acute ear infection. The purpose of this study was to check for any associations between hearing loss in these children and the degree of adenoid hypertrophy, as well as to examine the effects of adenoidectomy on middle ear function in children with chronic adenoiditis. Methods: 60 patients were utilized of each gender. This cross-sectional investigation was carried out on patients presenting to the ENT outpatient department at Department of ENT and Head and Neck Surgery, Ayaan Institute of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad, Telangana, India, with chronic adenoiditis from November 2021 to October 2022. The approach of consecutive sampling was utilized. Result: According to the study's findings, an adenoidectomy effectively resolves middle ear effusion and significantly improves postoperative hearing. The accepted standard of therapy for illnesses including obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and the cardio-respiratory effects of severe chronic adenoid enlargement is adenoidectomy. Conversely, less severe instances of chronic adenoiditis might not require surgery. Numerous randomised control studies have demonstrated how well nasal steroid spray treats allergic rhinitis and chronic adenoiditis. Conclusion: Adenoidectomy successfully drains the middle ear fluid and results in a considerable postoperative hearing improvement, it can be asserted with assurance
