Abstract

Abstract The symptom complex of secretory otitis media with the presence of fluid in the middle ear cavity is a common, although apparently a frequently overlooked, condition and needs reemphasis at this time, especially with regard to diagnosis and treatment. Because of the war emergency, large numbers of men have been quickly mobilized in the Armed Forces, and many of these are leading a predominantly outdoor life under conditions different from those to which they have been accustomed. An increase of respiratory diseases is inevitable under these circumstances, and inasmuch as secretory otitis media is most often secondary to a mild infection of the upper respiratory tract, it is being more frequently encountered. In the months of January, February, March and part of April of 1943 in the Ear, Nose and Throat and Flight Surgeon Services of Keesler Field Station Hospital, 76 men with fluid in the middle ear were seen, References 1.
