AMONG primary tumors of the liver, the group classified as mixed or embryonal is least common and least well recognized as a pathological entity. A search of the literature up to 1949 reveals only 26 such cases, two of which have been reported in this country. Nissel1 reviewed the German literature in 1928 and found 12 cases. Sheehan2 collected nine cases in 1930, two of which had not been included in Nissel's series. Hartz and van der Sar,3 in describing their case in 1945, commented that they could find no similar case in the literature and cited a personal communication from Edith L. Potter to confirm their impression. It is considered pertinent, therefore, to report the present case and to summarize the literature to date.
