Japanese Girl’s Tongue Attacked By
Strange Colony of Microbes.
Tokyo, Oct. 8.—(40 Strange
things in medicine and surgery are
often reported from Japan, but one
of the strangest is the recent case of
a girl whose three-inch tongue was
eaten up to one inch by microbes. By
cauterization, the surgeons report,
they were able to restore one inch of
the organ so that the girl now has a
tongue two iuches iu length.
The patient, Mies Sonoko Torii, 18
years old. found while she was at
tending school that her tongue ap
parently was getting shorter. With
in a few months the tougne had de
creased to such an extent that the
girl had difficulty in talking. She
consulted a number of doctors who
said they could do nothing for her.
Finally one of the most prominent
Japanese surgeons decided the ton
gue was "colonized" by unknown
microbes. He tried cauterization and
a "cure" apparently was effected.
Japanese scientists say there is no
record of a similar case.
