In this paper it is intended to describe briefly some of the more ordinary neoplasms of the maxilla.

The upper, as well as the lower maxillary bones, besides being subject to diseases affecting other bony structures of the body, are liable to the invasion of neoplasms peculiar and limited to themselves; among these may be mentioned the epulides, dentigerous and multilocular cystic tumors. The pathologic congeners of the epulides may, however, be found in other parts of the body, but it is not customary to call every growth found arising from the gums or from the periosteum of the alveoli an epulis.

Two, and only two, distinct forms of epulis are to be recognized as affecting these bones. The recognition of these is of importance, not only from a pathologic, but mainly from a surgical standpoint, as deciding the proper treatment, which is different in the two affections.
