  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A woman aged 56 complained of hard of hearing, troubles in the throat and difficulty of breathing. Nasal examination showed ul-ceration and swelling in areas; X-ray of the sinuses suggested tumor formation in the maxillary sinus. Exploratory sinus operation was performed on the suspected side; exa-mination of the mucous membrane showed tuberculosis of the maxillary sinus. Various symptoms of which the patient complained were most likely the result of this sinus in-volvement. The patient was cured by use of sulfa-drugs, streptomycin and kanamycin but it left in its course a marked saddle nose.
