Persons who present innocent tumours of the skin or internal viscera are not especially prone to carcinoma of the stomach. Among our fatal cases of that complaint, uterine fibro-myomata were only present in 3 per cent, and a cyst of the ovary in 0.5 per cent, of the females, while no instance of adenoma of the breast was recorded. Observations as to the existence of warts, lipomata, and other benign tumours are wanting in our hospital statistics, but from our own observations we are inclined to believe that these and other benign tumours are rare in the subjects of malignant disease of the stomach. Carcinoma has been occasionally found associated with adenomata of the stomach, but the attempt by Menetrier to establish a causal connection between the two can hardly be said to have been successful.
