The prognosis of sarcoma of the nasopharynx is so uniformly bad that any treatment that offers hope for either the amelioration of the symptoms or a possibility of cure deserves our attention. Having recently had an opportunity of trying a remedy in an inoperable and unfavorable case of sarcoma of the rhinopharynx with encouraging results, I wish to present the method employed to the fellows of this Association with the hope that it may be found worthy of further trial in other cases. The treatment employed was first suggested by Mahu,1 in 1903, and recently used in a case of carcinoma of the rhinopharynx by Berdier and Falabert2 with very marked benefit.
