Injuries and diseases of the jaws . on of decayed teeth.By the slow growth of the tumour the jaw is expanded, theouter plate yielding more readily than the inner, and, ifallowed to continue long enough, absorption of the bonewill take place, and a fungoid mass will project into themouth. This is well illustrated by a preparation of Mr.Liston^s, in the College of Surgeons (1040), the tumourhaving existed three years, and destroyed the front wall ofthe jaw. In the description of this preparation it is men-tioned that prior to Mr. Liston^s operation, the portionprojecting into the mouth had been cut oflF, and the surfacecauterized—it need hardly be said without any good result.A preparation in University College Museum (fig. 128) illus-trates the greater expansion of the outer than the innerplate by the contained tumour, already referred to; andshows also a curious transportation of the wisdom toothclose up to the condyle of the jaw by the growth of thetumour, which was probably connected with it in some way. 1 Ftg. 129.. Accompanying this essay was a good specimen of endostealfibrous tumour (College of Surgeons Museum, 1040 B)which INTr. Spencer Wells removed with the jaw from thesymphysis to the angle in a woman aged twenty-seven. FIBROUS TUMOURS. 283 whose couditiou at the time of the operation is representedin fig. 129, from a photograph by Dr. Wright. The tumouroccupied the left side of the lower jaw, and had existed forfour years^ being connected with decayed teeth^ one of whichon being extracted shortly before the operation brought asmall portion of the tumour away with it. Fig. 130, alsoby Dr. Wright, shows the tumour in the recent state (seePathological Societys Transactions, vol. xii.). It may, I think, be doubted whether a milder treatmentthan that of removal of the whole thickness of the bone Fig, 130.
