By A. J. Erwin, M.D.

It is not the purpose of this paper to enter upon a critical discussion of otitis media, any further than seems necessary to properly bring before you the history of an unusually interesting case, which has been under my care for the last few months. . . .

I will not take your time with a rehearsal of the therapeutics of purulent otitis; you will find it in full in the recent text-books on otology. I will proceed to give you an outline of the case mentioned.
