Excerpt from A Treatise on Gynaecology, Vol. 3: Clinical and Operative From a histogenetic point of view tumours of the ovary have been divided into new growths of connective-tissue origin and new growths of epithelial origin. The first group, dermoid tumours, comprises fibromata, sarcomata, and myxomata, all of which are very rare, and particularly the last-named. The second group, epithelial tumours, comprises the cysts, carcima or alveolar epithelioma, and adema or mucoid epithelioma. From a clinical point of view, the best division is into solid tumours and cystic tumours. The latter being infinitely the more common, deserve to receive the first attention of the practitioner.
