PRESENTATION OF CASES
Dr. J. R. Lindsay: Five clinical cases were reported before dinner. Two of these, the case in which movements of the stapes were visible and that in which cochlear function was still present and facial movements had returned after an operation on the labyrinth (the canals and the vestibule were opened posteriorly and the promontory removed between the oval and the round window) and decompression of the facial canal, will not be discussed unless questions are asked.The 2 cases in which petrositis was cured will be reported later.In the fifth case, reported as an instance of laryngeal vertigo, the patient had been ill for eight months. In May he began to have spells of coughing. During the more severe attacks he would fall down unconscious, and in fifteen or twenty seconds he would get up apparently quite normal. He broke his fibula in one fall.
