Excerpt from The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, 1866, Vol. 74
Professor Wilson has collected ninety cases, of which forty-four were females and thirty-three males; of the remainder the sex is not mentioned. Of this number, forty-eight were, seated on the head, four on the face, four on the nose, eleven on the thigh, three on the leg and foot, six on the back, five on the glans penis, and nine on the trunk of the body.
The most remarkable case on record is that of a Mexican porter, who had a horn situated on the upper and lateral part of the head, fourteen inches in circumference around its shaft, and divided above that point into three branches.
