My reasons for reporting the two following cases are. first, that one of them is, as far as I know, unique in its pathology, and the other presented a degree of deformity that is extremely rare; and, second, that the procedures resorted to for their relief have, as far as I know, never before been employed or suggested execpt by myself.

Case 1. 

Patient.  —A young woman, referred to me by Dr. C. Dewitt Lukens, who gave the following history: When five years of age she was crushed under a falling bale of hay, was generally injured, remained unconscious for forty-eight hours, but made a good immediate recovery. Between the ages of 11 and 12 years it was noticed that she could not open her mouth freely, and on examination it was found that the excursion of the lower jaw was limited.
