PROGRESS IN OTOLARYNGOLOGY: A Summary of the Bibliographic Material Available in the Field of Otolaryngology: ACUTE AND CHRONIC OTITIS MEDIA AND SINUS THROMBOSIS

Arch Otolaryngol. 1926;4(3):241-253. doi:10.1001/archotol.1926.00590010259009


Acute and chronic middle ear suppurations and sinus thrombosis furnished relatively few articles in 1925 which fall within the standards set for a summary. To enumerate all the articles and the journals in which they appeared would be but another way of publishing an index, accompanied by a very contracted abstract. An article, to come within our purview, must either contain original matter based on scientific observation, or must add clinical data to some moot or controversial question confronting otolaryngology. Case reports are omitted unless they shed added light on unsettled clinical aspects of a lesion, and reports on therapy are limited as far as possible to a discussion of such as contain comparative studies, so that the reviewer may quote the advantages of the advocated method over those measures heretofore employed and in general usage.
