The Signs and Causes of Inflammation of the Ear

  • François Du Port


Here there is inflammation in the very depth of the ear, and no swelling is visible, nor fiery redness, but the pain throbs and stings, with heat and fever: and then this ceases once pus is produced. It is hot and pungent blood that causes this, impinging on the eardrum and also on the nerve: and delirium and even death ensue with increase of the inflammation unless it is slight and small.
