ABSTRACT

According to Mikulicz and Kummel in their work entitled "Die Krankheiten des Mundes," there are two kinds of carcinoma which occur in connection with the maxillæ. 1. The flat, superficial epithelial carcinoma arising from the mucous membrane of the alveolar processes. 2. The carcinoma which makes its appearance first in the body of the maxillary bone. The above authors say:

The few cases of carcinoma of the alveolar processes which we have had the opportunity to see, came under observation during an advanced stage, so that no definite statement could be made as to their beginnings. It appears that the lesions of the mucous membrane made by the extraction of carious teeth gave the first impetus to the development of carcinoma. We find in the later stages the alveolar processes (the teeth are usually absent in the affected area) covered by an irregularly circumscribed swelling, usually much notched and bleeding
