Macroglossia with Transitory Benign Plaques. Presented by Dr. Michelson.  A youth, aged 18, with a negative past history, was presented because of an extreme enlargement of the tongue. When the tongue was protruded it was difficult to realize that it could be retracted within the oral cavity. At the sides there Were exfoliated circular plaques of red appearance, with marked heaping up of the epithelium at the periphery. The patient said that there was no change in the sensations of the tongue.

Pemphigus. Presented by Dr. Shapiro.  A. G., a man, aged 68, had a lesion of three months' duration on the tip of the tongue, extending backward on the left side to the dorsum and on the under surface. The lesion was fairly well demarcated from the surrounding mucosa. It had the appearance of a glistening, reddish, smooth area. There was no ulceration, no vesiculation, no bleeding, no infiltration.
