OSTEOMYELITIS OF THE SKULL ORIGINATING IN THE TEMPORAL BONE

OSTEOMYELITIS OF THE SKULL ORIGINATING IN THE TEMPORAL BONE Abstract In this communication the cases of osteomyelitis of the skull which originate in any part of the temporal bone will be discussed. This group includes (1) cases that occur after, and as a result of, trauma; (2) hematogenous cases of osteomyelitis, and (3) extension cases which complicate acute and chronic inflammatory disease beginning in the middle ear or in other parts of the otologic apparatus. Only those cases due to infection by the ordinary pyogenic bacteria (staphylococci, streptococci, pneumococci, etc.) are included, and no case of infection by the tubercle bacillus, by Spirochaeta pallida or by Actinomyces will be considered. In discussing osteomyelitis of the temporal bone, no attempt will be made to include the subject of middle ear or mastoid disease as customarily understood among otologists and among internists except where elucidation of the subject and the text requires it. This phase of disease is beyond the subject of References 1. Wilensky, A. O.: Osteomyelitis of the Skull , Arch. Surg. , in press. 2.

This group includes (1) cases that occur after, and as a result of, trauma; (2) hematogenous cases of osteomyelitis, and (3) extension cases which complicate acute and chronic inflammatory disease beginning in the middle ear or in other parts of the otologic apparatus. Only those cases due to infection by the ordinary pyogenic bacteria (staphylococci, streptococci, pneumococci, etc.) are included, and no case of infection by the tubercle bacillus, by Spirochaeta pallida or by Actinomyces will be considered. In discussing osteomyelitis of the temporal bone, no attempt will be made to include the subject of middle ear or mastoid disease as customarily understood among otologists and among internists except where elucidation of the subject and the text requires it.
