A CASE OF SCOTOMA AUEIS PARTIALE CENTRALE ET PERIPHERICUM.*  EMIL AMBERG, M.D.DETROIT.Miss J. Sch., aged about 40, has been for some time under treatment for otitis media eatarrhalis chronica, which may have set in, as patient thinks, after an attack of grippe two years ago, on which occasion she took quinin. There did not seem to be anything unusual in her case.When patient consulted me again, Nov. 12, 1902, she told me that she was surprised to find out, accidentally, that she could hear a clock at home when the clock was in a position upward from her right ear, but that she could not hear the same clock, at the same distance, when the clock was on a level with the ear. I examined the patient with a watch, which can be heard normally at a distance of about 100-150 inches, and could confirm the patient's own observation.
