The relative rarity of multiple primary carcinoma has led to the
production of a number of very important articles concerning their
occurrence and origin. Winiwarter, Kaufmann, Michelsohn, Schimmelbusch,
Bard and Bucher have especially busied themselves with this subject,
and, from an exhaustive search of the literature and analysis of
personal observations, have given us very important facts not only
concerning the origin of multiple carcinomata but of carcinoma in
general. . . .
