Abstract

Abstract THE following history describes one of the most interesting otologic cases I have ever encountered at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary during nearly two decades of service. The facts presented may provide objective experience for other otologists faced with similar difficult decisions. The hospitalization period can be divided into four parts: (a) management of paralysis of the left side of the face complicating an acute exacerbation of chronic suppurative otitis media on the left side with mastoiditis and destructive labyrinthitis; (b) management of superior petrosal and cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis and supracochlear basal petrositis complicating the destructive labyrinthitis; (c) management of meningitis complicating conditions in b, and (d) convalescence. In time, the first period approximated three weeks, the second about six weeks and the third and fourth about twelve weeks. REPORT OF A CASE On Oct. 22, 1943 a 12 year old white Brazilian boy was admitted to the Massachusetts References 1. Walker, J., and Rhoads, J. E.: Effect of Dicoumarol on Susceptibility to Action of Heparin , Surgery 15:859 ( (May) ) 1944. 2. Wheeler, E.: Personal communication to the author. 3. Schall, L.
