One of the chief points of interest in the present case is the infiltrative character of the hyper- and parakeratosis found in the microscopical examination of one of the iodide tumors. The infiltration resembled so strikingly epitheliomatous infiltration, as can be seen in the photograph, that the danger of mistaking one for the other is apparent. On looking back over my own experience I believe I made this mistake once myself, and my only consolation is that in operating on the lesion as an epithelioma, my fee was a great deal larger than if a correct diagnosis had been made.
