The first section treats of the methods of examination, in which Wullstein stresses the Stenvers position as being most favorable for accurate interpretation of otic pathologic conditions.

He states, however, that in spite of the most careful technic, certain conditions cannot be diagnosed with certainty. These are either a small circumscribed area of internal otitis or a diffuse internal otitis, involving only the mucosa of the inner ear. Other conditions involving the destruction of the bony capsule can readily be diagnosed, particularly when there is frank osteitis.
