Abstract: Suppose that $ \Omega $ is a domain in $ {C^n},E \subset \Omega $ is closed in $ \Omega $, and $ f:\Omega \backslash E \to {C^ * }$ is a meromorphic function. We show that if $ f$ is normal and $ E$ is an analytic subvariety or, more generally, of locally finite $ (2n - 2)$-dimensional Hausdorff measure in $ \Omega $ satisfying a certain geometric condition, then $ f$ can be extended to a meromorphic function (= holomorphic mapping) $ {f^ * }:\Omega \to {C^ * }$. In the case of a subvariety sufficient, but not necessary, for the geometric condition is that the singularities of $ E$ are normal crossings. As a digression, we give a new proof for the following result, due to Parreau in the case $ n = 1$: if $ f$ is in the Nevanlinna class and $ E$ is polar (in $ {R^{2n}}$), then $ f$ has a meromorphic extension $ {f^ * }$ to $ \Omega $.
