Abstract

Our knowledge of the morbid processes in the accessory nasal cavities is very limited. The inaccessibility of these places is no doubt largely responsible for this fact. To Zuckerkandl, the anatomist, belongs the credit of having directed attention to the diseases of these cavities by the publication of the well-known "Normal and Pathological Anatomy of the Nose and its Pneumatic Appendages," in which are found many illustrations of interesting morbid processes. A very important step in advancing the range of observations concerning the anatomic changes in these spaces was introduced by Harke,1 who devised a practical method of gaining access to the interior of the nose and adjacent cavities during post-mortem examinations without any disfigurement of the face of cadaver. Harke's method consists, in brief, of the following steps: After removing the brain in the ordinary method the soft parts are reflected anteriorly down to the root of the
