Sarcomata are not so often met with in the digestive organs.
Of course, we know in the history of some tumors that growth is delayed and that in the sarcomata recurrence is often late.
It is possible that some of the cases described as sarcomata belonged to the deadly group now known as malignant teratomata.
The carcinomata spring from the epithelial type of tissue while the sarcomata emanate from the connective tissue type.
Those chiefly met with are dermoids, fibromata, sarcomata and epitheliomata.
Fifty-six of these were done for cancer, and the remainder for sarcomata, papillomata, etc.
