The literature on the sinuses for 1935 is voluminous and naturally full of duplications and repetitions. Nevertheless, when one considers the wide territory covered both in the United States and abroad, it is not surprising that similar topics are presented in practically the same way over and over again. The most striking feature of last year's literature has been the definite influence on rhinologic procedure the world over of the work done by Proetz, Hilding, Fenton, Mullin and other Americans. American otolaryngologists have reason to be proud of their work because from every quarter of the globe evidence is accumulating of a keener appreciation of the natural defenses of the sinuses, through which a newer conception of therapy is being developed. I have therefore deemed it important not to overlook any of these reports, because in the aggregate they demonstrate most effectively the trend of the times.
