Abstract

To the Editor:  —In the Spanish edition of The Journal, July 2, appears an abstract on the use of ethyl chorid for the destruction of larvae of flies that may exist in the nose, ears or other passages. In this connection, Dr. Filadelfo Masis, professor of the Salvador Faculty of Medicine, has for some time utilized insufflation of iodoform for the use of nasal myiasis. As this disease is found frequently in tropical countries, it might be advisable to call attention to this simple, economical and effective medicine.
