From various sources the criteria to be applied in recognizing the development of gastric carcinoma upon gastric ulcer are assembled. In this manner the history of the evolution of this clinico-pathological conception is traced.

Definite pathologic criteria must be laid down and strictly adhered to in differentiating cancer-on-ulcer from ulcerating carcinoma. Clinically, the danger lies not so much in the possibility that cancer will develop upon a given gastric ulcer, as that an early
