A REVIEW of the literature on this subject, furnished by the package-lending library of the American Medical Association, leaves one with a confused idea of the actual status of true laryngocele and of the number of cases that have been observed and reported. Two cases of laryngocele have been seen by one laryngoscopist, who has had a great many years of experience.1 Another specialist reported 85.2
REPORT OF A CASE
History.—A single man aged 38 was admitted to the Regional Station Hospital, Orlando Army Air Base, Orlando, Fla. He complained of having had sore throat, off and on, for many years. Three months ago a small swelling in the left side of the neck had been noticed that was not related to eating or drinking, but usually became enlarged after a bout of coughing. At the time of the patient's admission it had reached the size of a hen's egg.
