Abstract

Papillomata of the larynx is undoubtedly the most frequent neoplasm found in the larynx of children, where fortunately pathologic growths are not of frequent occurrence. In an article by Rosenberg,1 of Berlin, he states that out of 5808 children under 13 years of age, 16 cases of papillomata were found, that is, 1 in 363 cases examined. Schrötter found the ratio about 1 in 700, Baumgarten states the condition was rare in his clinic. In my own clinic I find the disease occurring once in about every 1200 cases. It has been my fortune to see 5 of these cases, 3 in private and 2 in clinical practice, the histories of which I shall briefly relate: Case 1. —In March, 1896, a little girl, aged 6 years, was brought from Montana to consult Dr. M. R. Brown, of this city. At the time, Dr. Brown was unable to take
