A CLINICAL ANDPATHOLOGICSTUDY OFTUMORS ANDCYSTS OFTERATOLOGICORIGIN. DR. A. C. FURSTENBERG, Ann Arbor, Mich.

The occurrence of tumors and cysts of teratologic origin in various organs of the body as the result of congenital disturbances of development or misplacement of embryonal cells exemplifies a few of the mysterious principles in the genesis of neoplastic growth. In one instance one may deal with a tumor which develops from a mass of tissue misplaced during the development of the embryo; in another, the neoplasm is more logically explained as a proliferation of aberrant cell collections. Both formations give rise to an extensive group of heterologous tumors varying from simple cysts to larger, more complex teratoid growths which may contain a collection of widely differentiated cells from many organs of the body.
