Treatment of rhinoscleroma by local injection of carbolic acid-acetic acid and glycerine mixture
Two cases of rhinoscleroma were treated with local injection of carbolic acid-acetic acid-glycerine mixture. Complete regression of the granuloma without cicatrization resulted in restoration of normal patency of the obstructed nostrils. The gratifying result and the rationale of using the combination of weak acids is presented as a new method of treatment.
