A CASE OF MYCOSIS TONSILLARIS AFFECTING BOTH TONSILS.

A CASE OF MYCOSIS TONSILLARIS AFFECTING BOTH TONSILS. Miss A. B., aged 28, concert pianist, came to me, Sept. 26, 1902, with a history of having suffered more or less with her throat for the last ten years, the first attack of "sore throat" having begun in Boston while en tour; recurrences having been frequent since. February, 1902, she noticed a whitish formation on both tonsils. This could not be removed by the ordinary means resorted to, such as gargles, sprays, etc. She consulted several specialists in different portions of the country, but none vouchsafed an opinion as to the nature of the disease, nor advised anything in the way of radical treatment. Examination revealed in the sulcus forward of the posterior pillar of the right tonsil a fan-shaped, whitish growth, apparently fungoid in character. This growth extended from about midway of the tonsil up to the supratonsillar fossa. The tonsil was not hypertrophied to any considerable degree. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
