The important role played by tonsillar focal infection has been explained by the anatomical structure, histopathological findings, γ-globulin and bacteriological findings (hemolytic streptococcus). Keeping in mind the various factors of secondary infection following tonsillectomy which influence the prognosis, the healing conditions of 204 receiving tonsillectomy after accurate diagnosis have been reported. The curative rate of chronic, mild fever showed a figure of 100%, that of rheumatic disease 83.6%, and that of glomerulonephritis 80.4%. The most Satisfactory results were obtained in the acute stage of the disease, and early tonsillectomy is encouraged.
Fifty patients with Menière's syndrome were studied.The therapeutic data using sedatives, inorganic agents, autonomotrophic agents, vasodilatators, drugs effective for eliminating edema, anti-allergic agents, vitamins, hormones and ATP in combination with the types, stage and symptoms of this condition were reviewed to reveal the following results. 1) In the therapy of Menière's syndrome, one should lay stress upon the clinical type of the disease rather than the respective symptoms. 2) Anti-allergic agents and vasodilatators proved effective for the mild type, inorganic agents and anti-allergic agents were effective for type I, drugs eliminating edema and ATP responded to type II, and ATP and autonomotrophic agents proved effective for type III.
