A "Plea to General Practitioners" appears in this issue of the Archives of Otolaryngology, and it is hoped that our readers will have occasion to call attention to it among their medical and general practitioner colleagues.
Bell's palsy certainly should be considered an otologic problem, for the pathology lies within the temporal bone; the diagnosis should never be made without an otologic examination, and the best results require the cooperation of the otologic surgeon so that timely surgical decompression of selected cases may be done.
Our readers may wish to obtain reprints of this excellent article from Dr. Walsh for their medical friends.
