Abstract THE SUCCESSFUL treatment of chronic ethmoiditis and sphenoiditis is based on a careful personal history and a consideration of any anatomical abnormality and pathological changes which are present.

It should include the duration of the infection, its severity, the intervals of freedom, the character of the discharge, the patient's age and resistance, and the stress under which he lives. Consideration should be given to the type of employment, environment, use of tobacco and alcohol, diet, and allergic history.
