Report of New York Committee on Otitic Meningitis. Dr. James G. Dwyer, New York.
The New York committee on meningitis has continued its work during the last year, and in making our annual report we point out that for the first time we are able to report progress in several directions, which will be elaborated on further.During the last year the literature everywhere has been full of reports covering cases of otitic meningitis, with a larger percentage of recoveries than ever before. These reports have been complete, and the bacteriologic work has been exact. This is a distinct step forward, as the bacteriologic diagnosis in the past has been confusing and unsatisfactory. The use of sulfanilamide in its various forms and the combined use of this drug with allied substances has been a new development, which will be gone into later in this report
