By a Society of Physicians in London, 1769, vol. iii.
“A Case of Obstructed Deglutition from a Preternatural Bag formed in the Pharynx.—Reported in a letter from Mr. Ludlow, Surgeon in Bristol, to Dr. William Hunter, 1764. Male, aged 60. Inability to pass food into the stomach. Five years after swallowing a cherry-stone.
“It was clear that the bag was formed of a dilatation of the entire substance of the posterior part of the pharynx, the uniformity and thickness of both being so exact that it was impossible to ascertain at what particular point the dilatation first began.”
