Abstract EVER SINCE it has been possible to make a diagnosis of atrophic rhinitis with ozena, physicians have sought means whereby this disease may be combated, or at least a treatment which would allay the unpleasant signs and symptoms of the condition.

Atrophic rhinitis with ozena tends to attack more than one member of a family and is more prevalent in females than in males. It shows no predilection for Russian Jews or for heavy smokers but is prevalent in the Near East—in Latins and Orientals. Although it is also encountered in the Negroes of the United States, it is not seen in the African Negro.
