This is a complete review of the long debated topic of precancerous changes of the mammary gland and on the Reclus or Schimmelbusch's disease, the author contributing numerous personal cases. It is concluded that a precancerous condition can be feared only when the evolution of a cystic mammary tissue is toward papillomatous formation and not toward senile atrophy. The study is purely clinical, no mention being made of the important contributions from workers on the same problem in rabbits and mice.
