developed in new and isolated spots, where it was not known
or suspected to exist at the time of operation. This, therefore,
may fairly be regarded as a case not merely of recurrence in
loco, but one of commencing generalization, which entitles the
aflfection to be considered as of the most decidedly malignant
The literature of diseases of the synovial sheaths seems
to be extremely meager. A great many isolated cases of
the ordinary forms are scattered through the journals, and
Dr. Hulke, in the " Medical Times and Gazette," gives a
short account of a case in which he found, in a jJost-malleo-
lar swelling, the cavity filled with small grains, as benoquin 20 he de-
scribes them, of the shape and size of melon-seeds ; but I
have buy benoquin online not yet been able to find any description of an endo-
genous growth within tlfe synovial sheaths which in any way
resembles that which we have been considering. Fournier
and Verneuil have published short papers on the form of
synovial distension which is dependent upon syphilis, but to
this form their cases and remarks are strictly confined.
I monobenzone benoquin have presented these cases to the society because I
think they ofier a phase of sarcomatous disease which has
not hitherto been described. Beside the benoquin online benoquin cream for sale interest which may benoquin monobenzone cream
attach to them as rare developments of sarcoma, they have,
I have thought, a practical importance in the diagnosis, and
especially in the prognosis, of synovial diseases. Traumatic
and spontaneous inflammations of the synovial sheaths, both
acute and chronic, are certainly not very uncommon affec-
tions, and to discriminate between these comparatively harm-
less conditions and those in which dangerous and even fatal
results may possibly be realized is worthy of careful atten-
tion. That such discrimination may be made with certainty
I would not venture to claim, but I think that the slow,
painless progress, at least in the earlier stages, the absence
of distinct fluctuation, the firmness and tension of the sac,
and the negative results of puncture, may lead to a suspi-
cion, if not to a certainty, of sarcoma, and may thus have
an important bearing both on treatment and on prognosis.
Before concluding I wish to read the following letter :
"12 West TBmTY-SECOND Street, April 5, 1884.
" Dear Dootoe : I am not sure whether this case belongs
to your cases or not :
" Male, aged thirty, a laborer. Tumor removed by Dr.
Wood, benoquin cream 20 -June, 1869. Ten years ago patient first noticed a tumor buy benoquin
the size of a pea in the palm of the hand. It grew slowly at
first, rapidly within the last three months.
" It is now situated between the palmar fascia and the sheath
of the tendons. It is of pyriform shape, six benoquin price and a half centi-
" When laid open, the tumor is found to consist of a fibrous
cyst-wall, from which grow benoquin cream soft masses, filling up the benoquin vitiligo cavity.
These masses are soft, succulent, yeUow, mottled with hasmor-
rhages. They are composed almost entirely of cells, which are
of round, oval, fu.siform, and stellate shapes.
" The history as to the exact position of the tumor is not
satisfactory, but I believed at the time that it originated in the
sheath of one of the teudous.
" Yours truly,
