The subject of this report, Mrs. W. M. S., was referred to the writer by Dr. Hatch, of Newark, Ohio, April 29, 1895, for the removal of what seemed to be a rather large fibroid polypus nearly filling the vault of the pharynx. It was attached to the septum, on the left side, near its posterior extremity, and nasal breathing could not be accomplished. Growing from a point near the posterior extremity of the left middle turbinated body was another tumor about one-half an inch long and one-quarter of an inch thick, much softer, and differing in no way from an ordinary mucoid polypus in appearance. Both were removed; the former by means of forceps, through the mouth, and the latter with a cold wire snare through the nose. The stump of each was touched with a galvanocautery point, and under Dr. Hatch's care the surfaces healed satisfactorily.
