About seventeen years ago, when I came to this country, after having seen and operated on many cases of adenoids at Berlin and Freiburg, at one of the first meetings of the New York Academy of Medicine which I attended, a prominent colleague made the remark that while there might be found such things as adenoid vegetations among the children in Denmark or in Germany and Russia, the Anglo-Saxon race was free from that anomaly. In the years that have elapsed, I am confident that the gentleman has been convinced that they do exist in England as well as in the United States, and nowadays I have yet to see the practitioner who has not encountered cases of so-called adenoids in his own practice. They have been, so to speak, part of my daily bread for more than eighteen years in clinics and private practice. Still, when your Chairman did me the honor of asking me to read a paper before this Section, I was somewhat embarrassed as to what to say to a body of experienced practitioners that would be new to them on this topic.
