PECULIARITIES OF THE SURGICAL DISEASES, INJURIES OF THE LATERAL REGION OF THE NECK OR OF THE STERNO-MASTOID REGION OR CAROTID REGION.
Congenital malformations are represented in this region by the orifices of the branchial fistulæ, situated most commonly along the lower part of the anterior border of the sterno-mastoid; also by the congenital deformity of the sterno-mastoid, called hematoma of the sterno-mastoid, and congenital torticollis; also by the congenital atrophy of the same muscle. Acquired malformations comprise the various forms and varieties of torticollis and the deformities due to cicatrices. Cicatrices of the neck are most objectionable, especially when affecting the exposed parts.Swellings of the region recognize the same causes, present the same forms and varieties as anywhere else.Burns or frost bites present no peculiarity in the region of the sterno-mastoid, except when deep and reaching the sterno-mastoid or the underlying vessels and nerves.Contusions or blows on
