DR. MORROW said that in some cases he had obtained very good results from deep multiple scarifications made over the tumor. Some time ago he had a case of disfiguring keloids of the face, following an application of some kind of acid made for the removal of moles, and recently he had a case where a number of keloid growth had appeared on the hands, following the removal of warts. In these cases treatment by deep scarifications were followed by a marked improvement. It required more than one scarification, however.
