Abstract

It is the purpose of this paper to describe in a brief and concise manner the treatment which I have found most effectual for the permanent removal of those morbid growths known and described as aural polypi. Gruber defines aural polypus as a neoplasm originating in the auditory canal or in the deeper parts of the ear, which is pedunculated and consists principally of histologic elements of the soft connective tissue order. Granulations springing from a broader base are generally called polypoid proliferations. These growths have received a great variety of names by different writers, but I am of the opinion that no observer can say that this is a mucous polypus or a fibrous, but that he will find a combination of both mucous and fibroid tissue. I am also of the opinion that all polypi are at the very commencement granulation tissue and that as they grow in
