This recent symposium is the result of numerous investigations of the treatment of such otolaryngological complications as meningitis, tympanogenic labyrinthitis, cerebral abscess, petrositis, and sepsis by Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish workers, headed by Robert Lund. This work was completed in 1950. The table of contents includes the following: 1. Bacteriological Problems, Resistance Test, Blood-Cerebro-Spinal Fluid, Barrier; 2. Penicillin Treatment of Meningitis; 3. Tympanogenic Labyrinthitis; 4. Rhinogenic Osteomyelitis; 5. Thrombophlebitis; 6. Allergy and Incidental Toxic Effects.

Each of the co-workers of this joint enterprise has not only analyzed the statistics of the cases reported but has reviewed the literature concerning his particular subject. Such a review and study is worth-while reading for all otolaryngologists.
