The material for this study of primary carcinoma of the liver was derived from 24,400 consecutive autopsies performed at Bellevue Hospital from 1906 to 1936. In selecting these 62 cases a review of all cases included in our protocols as primary carcinomata of the liver was carried out. Those cases which, either on analysis of the protocols, or, microscopically, did not represent typical examples of carcinoma, were excluded, together with those in which clinical records or microscopic preparations were not available. All cases were likewise excluded in which duct cell carcinoma of the pancreas was suspected, microscopically or otherwise.
