The literature for 1943 is characterized by the large number of articles dealing with effects of drugs on the nasal mucosa and the value of various sulfonamide compounds used alone or in combination with vasoconstrictors in the treatment of sinus disease and general infections of the upper respiratory tract. It is difficult to evaluate this work at the present time because of the variable factors involved in each instance and the lack of an acceptable common denominator. Interest in these compounds is at fever heat, and there is no doubt that they are being widely used, perhaps indiscriminately and possibly with some danger to certain patients. More controlled experiments may be necessary before an accurate appraisal can be made. These, no doubt, will be forthcoming as time goes by.
