INTRODUCTION  The relative rarity of primary carcinoma of the lungs and bronchi, the difficulty of making a clinical diagnosis and the comparative inaccessibility in regard to surgical procedures, have tended to limit the practical interest in these tumors.

The object will be to give a brief résumé of the pathology of carcinoma
