Abstract

Abstract History.—O. B., a woman, aged 38, married, childless, twelve years before I saw her had suffered from an attack of otitis media of the right ear, accompanied by discharge, the duration of which she did not know. From the first attack until operation in January, 1924, the patient complained of tenderness over the right mastoid to such an extent that she was never able to lie on her right side to sleep, waking if she turned over. She was never able to wear tight fitting hats or to use the telephone with her right ear. Five years later she moved into a damp suburb of Boston and drove in an open automobile. Shortly afterward she developed pain on the right side of her face. It began in the lower jaw. It was always present on damp days, and a sharp wind precipitated a violent attack. Two years after the References 1. Lyon, H. R.: Otitis Media Complicating Operation on the Gasserian Ganglion , J. A. M. A. 80:176, ( (Jan. 20) ) 1923.Crossref 2.
