OTITIS EXTERNA AND ITS TREATMENT

OTITIS EXTERNA AND ITS TREATMENT Abstract The frequency and the severity of otitis externa determine its economic importance. The present report concerns a group of 90 patients who were observed in a tropical climate and treated until they were well. They were all males aged from 17 to 43 and included 76 men of the United States Navy, 2 English sailors, 1 Dutch sailor and 3 natives. There were a number of others who could not be kept under observation until cured. In a period of six months there were well over 150 persons with otitis externa in this community. In a previous station of roughly twice this population on the northeastern seaboard of the United States I observed about 15 patients with this condition for a period of six months. Naturally, the physician and the patients in these two localities view this disease with different conceptions of its importance. The etiology of otitis externa is References 1. Greaves, F.
