IN A PREVIOUS communication1 we published the results of our work on the following subjects: (1) chronic sinus disease and chronic nasal catarrh; (2) cough and expectoration still present after a partially successful pneumothorax treatment or thoracoplastic operation; (3) pulmonary tuberculosis with troublesome cough and sputum for which no surgical procedure could be employed; (4) bronchiectasis, and (5) allergic bronchitis.
In the present communication, we are presenting our work to date with chronic sinusitis and chronic nasal catarrh. Patients with chronic nasal catarrh showed no evidence either by x-ray examination or by transillumination of sinus disease.
METHOD OF STUDY
Preliminary Investigations.—Before beginning treatment and as a routine measure, we make a thorough physical and x-ray examination of each patient. X-rays of all the sinuses are made; transillumination of the sinuses is also done, and a careful physical examination of the entire body is made. Urine, sputum, and blood
