In smear preparations of laryngeal epithelial cells, the authors carried out statistical measurements of nuclear variation. The volume and the frequency of the two types of nuclei found in the smears of normal material showed a relative constancy. In the pachydermic condition, however, two new nuclear types appeared. Based on their frequency, the authors differentiated within the uniform pathohistologic picture two subclasses (pachydermia I and pachydermia II). The quantitative results obtained from the curves of the nuclear variations correlated well with the qualitative results obtained previously by fluoroscent microscopy.
