I reported a case of prolapse of the laryngeal ventricle in the Medical News, Feb. 2, 1895, which presented at intervals marked symptoms of stenosis, the dyspnea at such times being very severe. Since that time, a number of cases of chronic stenosis, due to different causes, have come under my care, and I hope that a short history of some of these may prove both interesting and instructive.
Any cause acting either from within or from without which lessens the lumen of the larynx, will produce the symptoms of stricture, and so long as the cause is active there will be actual constriction. The condition may be acute or chronic, according to the length of time the process has been present and active, but the ultimate symptoms of the two varieties are the same, and the gravity of the symptoms is always dependent upon the severity of the lesion
