Hydatid of the Prostate



Dr. Bolton Bangs presented a man, thirty-nine years of age, upon whom he had operated for a tumor of the prostate. For the history and details of this see page 565.

Dr. Lange,after examining Dr. Bangs's patient, said that the prostate was enlarged and fairly regular in its outline. It was somewhat elastic, but there was no fluctuation. The wall of the original tumor or cyst which Dr. Bangs described has apparently shrunken, and now corresponds to the wall of the prostate, leaving the latter still enlarged. The tumor seems to have originated in the prostate.
