A STUDY of frontal sinusitis, acute and chronic, was undertaken to show the trend of this disease for the past ten years, including a compilation of the various factors relevant to this disease.
A secondary observation has been the effect of penicillin in the treatment of frontal sinusitis.
A thorough screening of the literature for a similar report was made without results.
This study covers the ten year period from 1938 to June 1948. During this period there were 297 cases of infection of the frontal sinus listed in the files of the record room of the Los Angeles County General Hospital. A close scrutiny of these cases indicated that 143 met the necessary requirements for inclusion in this study on the basis of clinical and roentgenographic findings, operation, etc. Of the 297
cases, 26 charts could not be located, and in 128 the diagnosis included frontal sinusitis
