Abstract

ENDOTRACHEAL anesthesia constitutes one of the great advances of modern anesthesia. It has made chest surgery possible, and in long procedures under general anesthesia or in which there is trouble keeping an airway it is a great comfort for both surgeon and anesthetist. Almost any frequently used procedure has some complications, and there have been, from time to time, reports of laryngeal granuloma appearing at various intervals after endotracheal anesthesia. There are at this time reports of 21 such cases by Clausen,1 Gould,2 Cohen,3 Smiley,4 Farrior,5 Kearney,6 Tuft and Ratner,7 Barton8 (two cases), McLaurin,9 Hill,10 New and Devine11 (nine cases) and Wattles.12 It is the purpose of this paper to add another such case to the literature. No attempt is made to review the literature in detail, as this has been done very completely by New and Devine
