1. Dr. Gatscher presented a patient who suffered from paracusis echotica for a short time following acute myringitis.
2. Dr. L. Hofmann presented a girl, aged 6½ years, in whom an exacerbation of chronic otitis was followed by bulbus thrombosis. An interesting feature of this case was the simultaneous appearance of choreatic symptoms and the symmetrical appearance of metastases in both ring fingers.
3. Dr. Forschner presented a case in which sinus thrombosis occurred in the third week of an attack of acute otitis.
