Abstract

To gather and set in orderly array the different states and conditions that have been observed and recorded as etiologic agents in the production of adenoid hypertrophy is not difficult, for the literature of the subject is extensive and at hand. Age, sex, heredity, scrofula, the lymphatic temperament, frequent colds, nasal deformities, acute infectious fevers, microbes, climate, and social condition are the chief factors that have been named.

What is the reason for its frequent congenital occurrence? These and other queries still clamor for solution. In the present instance we have but
