CYST OF INFERIOR BONY TURBINAL.  Alice S., of Grenada, Miss., colored, aged approximately between 30 and 35 years, a stout, apparently healthy woman, consulted me on Nov. 16, 1901, with the following history: She had had a fulness in the right nostril for some time, the exact date of its beginning being indefinite, but perhaps could be traced back several months. The condition occasioned no pain, only inconvenience. The growth in her nose had been incised on two different occasions, but according to her statement nothing other than a little blood followed each of these incisions. Examination revealed an enlargement of the anterior end of the inferior turbinated body. This growth was sessile and practically completely occluded the naris. On pressure with a probe, the swelling proved to be edematous. Under cocain anesthesia the tumor was incised, and a thin, sero-purulent discharge, about a teaspoonful in quantity, followed the incision.
