The injection of sterilized air or oxygen into the bladder makes it possible to demonstrate soft tumors of this viscus. While others have directed attention to this fact previously, we believe that the two illustrations shown herewith may not be without interest. In Figure 1 the bladder was filled with air and the roentgenogram taken. Figure 2 is a photograph of the tumor after its removal. The actual diagnosis was first made by cystoscopic examination; we thought of treating it by fulguration. The roentgenogram led us to believe that the size of the tumor indicated its extirpation.
If the growth returns we shall employ the fulguration treatment before it has attained such a large size. The pathologist who examined the specimen reported that it was a benign papilloma.
