Abstract

Abstract This paper deals with the cases of the first 100 patients with aural disease who were admitted to the Tilton General Hospital. An analysis with special reference to the cause and the treatment of the aural disease and the ultimate disposition of the patients was undertaken in order to afford an understanding of aural disease as it occurs in the United States Army. The American soldier is healthy and generally free from constitutional disease. The physical examination given before induction eliminates the majority of men with pathologic conditions. Those who are accepted profit by an active, health-building program. The series comprised 4.3 per cent of the first 2,290 patients admitted to the hospital for all causes. The average age of this group was 25.9 years; 78 per cent of the men were between 20 and 30 years, 14 per cent over 30 years and 8 per cent under 20 years References 1.
