Milwaukee, Wis., April 28, 1898.
To the Editor:
—I notice, in the last issue of the Journal, reference made in regard to Beyla's and Kelly's cases of enucleation of parovarian cysts without the removal of the tubes and ovaries, with the remark that those are the only cases ever reported.I have reported one case in the Transactions of the Wisconsin State Medical Society, 1897.The operation was done in July, 1895. Two parovarian cysts were removed; the right one was about the size of a small cocoanut. It was very easily enucleated. The top of the broad ligament was torn open with the finger and the cyst readily shelled out intact. The one in the left broad ligament was also enucleated, but with greater difficulty. Both were successfully removed without interfering with the tubes and ovaries. The patient made an uninterrupted recovery.Yours respectfully,
