CARCINOMA OF TEMPORAL REGION.

DR. WILLY MEYER presented a woman, eighty years old, from whom he had excised an ulcerating carcinoma in the right tem poral region, which involved the skin and periosteum and also the right upper eyelid. After thorough excision of the diseased tissues, including a great part of the periosteum of the frontal bone, the denuded area was covered with skin grafts by Thiersch's method. The grafts, which were taken from the patient's thigh, produced an excellent cosmetic result.
