Presented to Section of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women of American Medical Association, May, 1884.

The malignant diseases that more frequently attack the uterus are:

1st. Epithelioma.

2nd. Medullary carcinoma; and

3rd. Sarcoma.

They occur, according to my observation, in the order of frequency here mentioned.

Probably not less frequently than the sarcoma is found the epithelial or corroding ulcer. Preparatory to the surgical treatment of these affections I desire to make some observations, particularly as to the tissues sues first invaded by them, their mode of development and manner of destruction. My idea of an epithelioma is that the deposit occurs on the free surface of the mucous membrane, in its epithelial stratum, and consists essentially of extreme multiplication of epithelial cells which, after great development of the tissue in which the process is going on, die, causing sloughs of greater or less size.

This form of malignant disease
