The observations of European investigators and more recently of Long1, 2 and Schwentker3 in this country on the treatment of beta hemolytic streptococcic infections by para-amino-benzene-sulfonamide suggested to the author the use of this drug in infections of the central nervous system. The opportunity presented itself to try this drug on a case of fulminating meningitis following a middle ear and mastoid infection admitted to the Neurosurgical Service of Dr. Charles Bagley, Jr., at the University of Maryland Hospital on December 18, 1936. The dosage used in the treatment of this case was the same as that used by Schwentker3
