Seite 91 - Thus, that — 1. Affections of the external meatus and mastoid cells produce disease in the lateral sinus and cerebellum. 2. Affections of the tympanic cavity produce disease in the cerebrum. 3. Affections of the vestibule and cochlea produce disease in the medulla oblongata. 1.

Seite 145 - Street, mentioned to me the case of a gentleman, the lobe of whose ear was sometimes attacked suddenly by gouty congestion, accompanied by agonizing pain, but which never lasted more than a few hours. And I have myself recently suffered from a similar attack in the cartilage of the ear, which did not last longer than an hour, disappearing on the occurrence of gouty pains in the fingers.
Seite 92 - ... by the existence of very intimate relations between this membrane and the dura mater. The affection of the tympanum which most frequently produces disease in the cerebrum is chronic catarrhal inflammation of the mucous membrane, an affection thus far only known as an otorrhoea. The four changes in the dura mater and cerebrum produced by the affections of the tympanum are — 1.

Seite 132 - Trifling with and irritating the organ, with drops, unguents, and lotions, is only betraying the patient into a flattering and useless anticipation of benefit, without any chance of eradicating, or even of reaching, the root of the disease. In the treatment of this malady our object ought to be, not merely to remove it, but to do so at as little expense as possible to the stamina of the body.
Seite 201 - The result of these intermarriages was 100 cases — 86 congenital, and 6 acquired — of one mute in a family ; 4 of these were dumb only ; and 4 were dumb and idiotic. In 34 families, where the parents were related, two children were deaf and dumb, in only one instance of which the disease occurred after birth.
Seite 92 - ... without the presence of any other symptoms calculated to reveal to the medical man the existence of formidable disease, than the presence of a discharge from the external auditory meatus; and that consequently no person suffering from catarrhal inflammation of the dermoid layer of the meatus, the membrana tympani, or of the mucous membrane of the tympanum, can be assured that disease is not being prolonged to the temporal bone, the brain, and its membranes ; and that any ordinary exciting cause,...
Seite 93 - ... no person suffering from catarrhal inflammation of the dermoid layer of the meatus, the membrana tympani, or of the mucous membrane of the tympanum, can be assured that disease is not being prolonged to the temporal bone, the brain, and its membranes ; and that any ordinary exciting cause, as an attack of fever or influenza, a blow on the head, &c., may not induce the appearance of acute symptoms, which, as a general rule, are speedily fatal.
Seite 28 - ... paroxysms, and recurring with great violence when the head is bent downwards. Sometimes the pain is excited by merely touching the scalp, and the patient is unable to rest his head on the affected side or even lean it on a pillow. The pain in most cases is remittent, the paroxysm coming on at four, six, or eight o'clock in the evening, continuing during the night, being most severe about midnight, and suffering an abatement towards...
