Article abstract

Two groups of patients affected by chronic pathologies of the middle ear evolving towards rhinogenous deafness were submitted to a test aimed at evaluating the therapeutical effect of a sulphurous water: one group was treated with the mineral water "Madonna Assunta" of the watering resort PIGNA (IM), the other one was treated with placebo.

The analysis of the clinical results as well as of the variations in the audiometric and impedancemetric instrumental values, showed the therapeutical effectiveness of the sulphurous water and its peculiar biological action.
