PENICILLIN IN CHRONIC OTITIS MEDIA

PENICILLIN IN CHRONIC OTITIS MEDIA Abstract DURING the time that penicillin was first being used in the treatment of practically any and all types of infections, it was felt that it would be desirable to determine exactly what might be expected from the sole use of this new antibiotic agent in the treatment of chronic otitis media.

Abstract

Abstract DURING the time that penicillin was first being used in the treatment of practically any and all types of infections, it was felt that it would be desirable to determine exactly what might be expected from the sole use of this new antibiotic agent in the treatment of chronic otitis media.

Experience with a succession of nonsurgical methods has been inconsistent and left much to be desired in the way of end results. Although it was realized that the conditions which obtain
