In our work for the last few years at the Mount Sinai Pediatric Clinic, we have observed a condition of the neck that does not seem to correspond with any of the known clinical entities in that region and yet which simulates them very closely.
Five children have been seen to date who have had this condition of the neck. Their histories follow.
REPORT OF CASES
—H. W., a boy, aged 6 years and 6 months, was brought to the clinic for the treatment of enuresis and the presence of a transiently appearing tumor of the right side of the neck.
