ABSTRACT

The undue importance which has been given the lower turbinate bodies in the search for the etiology of nasal disorders has overshadowed all other parts of the nasal cavities and led to wrongfully crediting the lower turbinate with the more important instead of the less important rôle in the production of nasal disease. This was principally owing to their easy accessibility and also to the fact that in most nasal disorders these bodies were found swollen and occluding the respiratory passages whereby effect was mistaken for cause.

A moment's reflection will convince one that an acute coryza manifests itself in the region above the lower turbinate first, with a feeling of dryness and pressure followed later by obstruction to respiration due to swelling of the lower turbinate. Very often a patient presents himself with a beginning coryza in which the only perceptible change of the mucous surface is a dryness
