Abstract

I have been constrained to select this subject for my paper because in looking over the literature I have found but few instances of American writers having recorded cases of this pathologic condition. That the subject is important is proven by the circumstances surrounding my first case, the history of which is given below. The patient was a male child, 6 years old, living in the southern part of Illinois. Six months before I saw him he had been operated on for a tumor of the septum, which had bled at frequent intervals for two months previously. The neoplasm was diagnosed sarcoma, was removed with a snare, and the toxins used. There had been the usual reactions and after two months the child was pronounced cured. But the bleeding having returned, the child was brought to me. On examination I found a tumor the size of a large pea projecting
