Twenty cases of primary carcinoma of the liver have been found in 35,995 admissions to this hospital in the last 10 years. Twelve of these patients had hepatomas, or liver cell tumors, while six had cholangiomas, or bile duct cell tumors, and two had atypical or mixed types. The ratio of hepatomas to cholangiomas, therefore, was 2:1, which agrees with the ratio given by Bockus.1 Ten of these 20 patients (seven of the hepatoma group and three of the cholangioma group) also had cirrhosis. Seven were white males and 13 were Negro males.
