To the Editor.–Some historical notes can be added to the article entitled "Secretory Otitis Media in 1884" by Wilhelm Moll (Archives 100:240-241, 1974). Schwartze,1 in 1864, described a case of secretory otitis media and treatment with paracentesis. After Schwartz2 Frank and Bonnafont,3 in 1845, described the same disease and recommended paracentesis as a treatment.
