Tumors arising in lateral aberrant thyroid tissue are not uncommon, and the literature pertaining to them was reviewed in 1901 by von Eiselsberg, in 1906 by Schrager and by Payr and Martina, in 1925 by Billings and Paul and by Fedeli, and in 1926 by Wegelin. The greatest number of case reports included in any single review is the fifty-three collected by Fedeli. Since there are at least one hundred and three published cases, to which we are adding six, we believe that a critical study of the entire group will be profitable.1

It is probable that such tumors occur more commonly than the number of published cases would indicate. The anatomic origin of large invasive thyroid tumors is frequently difficult to determine, and it is likely that such tumors arising in aberrant thyroid tissue have in some instances been attributed to the thyroid gland. It is also probable
