Haemorrhage from the nares is of frequent occurrence. There are persons who have a special proclivity to it, in whom it occurs at intervals without apparent cause. It also occurs in consequence of tumours, especially polypi in the nares, the mucous membrane over the tumour being liable to bleed. It is an occasional concomitant of fevers, (typhoid fever) especially at their onset. The blood usually comes from the anterior part of the nares and especially from the mucous membrane over the cartilaginous septum.
