The volume of literature on the subject of deafness is steadily increasing. Many important papers are appearing in other than otolaryngological journals. Some of these are not detected by the reviewers and others are listed in indices under classifications emphasizing a coexisting subject matter so that pertinent data on deafness is not listed. The selection of publications for summary in this paper is based on whether any new or improved aspects of the anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical examinations, and therapy as pertaining to deafness, are presented. As far as possible an attempt is made to correlate the subject matter so that it does not overlap the work of other reviewers in closely related subjects.

The subject matter has been arranged in the following manner: otosclerosis, Ménière's disease, acoustic and head trauma, miscellaneous contributions on deafness, reconstructive surgery for middle ear deafness, toxic labyrinthitis, vestibular examinations, and the anatomy and physiology
