OTOLARYNGOLOGISTS are increasingly more aware of allergic factors in chronic diseases of the upper respiratory passages, of the middle ear and eustachian tube, of the outer and inner ear in some cases, and in the larynx and bronchi. Through the pioneering work of French K. Hansel with the optimal dosage technique for the treatment of inhalant allergies otolaryngologists have made a signal contribution to the science of allergy. Hansel in turn inspired the late great Herbert J. Rinkel, a general allergist, who adopted and then modified the Hansel methods of treatment. His techniques were described in a series of articles published in the Archives, beginning with the December 1962 issue. The work begun by Hansel and continued and developed by Rinkel has been carried forward by their students with significant advances which will be described in a series of three articles, the first of which appears in this issue.
