The following case presents some points of interest worthy of reporting, as it seems to correspond with a certain class of cases recently referred to by Jonathan Wright.1 Till Wright's paper appeared, I had been almost convinced that my case was one of benign papilloma, in spite of the fact that the growth had all the macroscopic appearances of early malignancy. The opinion that the growth was malignant was shared by Dr. E. Fletcher Ingals, who saw the patient in June, 1908. Now I am of the opinion that the tumor was carcinoma, but disappeared without treatment. As to this fact, however, we can never be sure, as the patient declined to have a specimen removed with a view of prompt laryngectomy, or, at least, laryngotomy.
