 MURAKAMI rerorts 2 cases of hyper-salivation that were cured in one by adenotosillectomy a d the other by deep X-Ray therapy. Examination of saliva in both cases proved to be normal. The author states that this abnormal slivation is a condition brought on by a state of vagotonia. Abnorma stimulation arising from nasopharynx and tonsils reaching the craniol centers must have established reflex pathway for the parotid glands which w a also augmented by vagotonia causing the stimulation riasing from hypothalmus which passed through the dorsal neucleus. The treaiment of nasophar ynx caused an abruption in the course of travel of that stimulation in spite of the state of vagotonia that in turn established a normal pathway of stimuli.
