The congenital deformity was observed over the sternum of a boy. The diameter of the pocket was one and one-half inches and the opening measured one-quarter by one-eighth of an inch. There were hair-follicles and sweat glands in the skin overlying the pocket and in the skin lining it. No signs of scar-tissue or traces of old inflammation or injury around or inside of the pocket could be determined.
