To support the author's contention that ozena is a manifestation of an iron deficiency state, both clinical and experimental evidence is used with special attention given to histological studies. The author states that ozena is part of a generalized disease and paints a very graphic picture of the entire condition.

This monograph contains a careful review of past and present etiological theories and has a comprehensive bibliography. This is an easily read script on a difficult subject stressing one factor which may be both treatable and preventable.
