To the Editor.—I enjoyed your "Nugget" (85:104 [Jan] 1967), from Acta Otolaryng, July 1966, referring to the installation of colistin into the mastoid air-cell system. We had just such a patient shortly after this article appeared and did instill a catheter. Unfortunately, we were not smart enough to cover the procedure with antibiotics effective also against gram-positive organisms, and the patient developed a staphylococcal meningitis!
