On the basis of seven personal cases, the author concludes that chorionepithelioma is a product of the male germ cells and that the ripe ovum does not possess the power to originate epithelium, this power being acquired only after fecundation has taken place. He discusses extensively the facts concerning malignant chorionepithelioma of the male and closes his work with an exposition of the theories on histogenesis of teratomas of the genital glands and their origin from the germ cells, and on the formation of chorionepithelioma from male differentiated germ cells. The thesis is well written in fluent language, covers the subject thoroughly and competently, and offers a number of excellent illustrations.
