Abstract

I will mention briefly a case of what proved to be malignant tumor of the interior of the nose, to show what differences of opinion as to diagnosis, there may be among competent men. It was the case of a gentleman, sent to me from Milledgeville, Ga., about a year ago. He complained of a lump on the side of his neck under the jaw, and a feeling of obstruction in the left nostril. I found a large polypoid growth in the upper part of the left nasal cavity, which I presume sprang from the ethmoid, and which I thought presented the appearance of malignancy. I removed a large piece, examined it, and also had it examined by a competent microscopist, who pronounced it a carcinoma. I informed the patient's family physician of the confirmation of my opinion, and recommended an immediate operation, as the only hope of relief, though
