I propose to draw attention to certain embryological processes and phenomena which appear to have escaped a more than cursory attention by the pathologist and, if a perusal of the literature and an inquiry among those able to judge lead me to suppose correctly, have received a rather inadequate consideration by anatomists and physiologists. The road, therefore, is difficult to travel, and the observations and considerations which are recorded below will appear necessarily fragmentary and incomplete. Indeed, the difficulty of obtaining suitable material and other more personal obstacles allow me to offer no more than an outline of the matter. That, however, seems warranted by the importance and the unfortunate neglect of the subject. Even in incomplete form it may, nevertheless, obtain the interest and future help of those who by position and experience are able to enlarge on the facts and elaborate the conclusions to be drawn therefrom.
