This paper is based in a series of cases which were studied by me during the tenure of a Muirhead Scholarship on the Clinical Laboratory at the Victoria Infirmary. The post-mortem and clinical records together with specimens and microscopical slides were put at my disposal for the purposes of this study. All the tumours which were considered had developed as primary growths of the kidney ot adrenal gland. Few cases of simple tumour growth were met with, and for the present study these cases have been set aside. I have only considered the embryonic type of growth and the growths arising in cystic kidneys, apart from the main part of the study, which deals with renal carcinoma, hypernephroma, blastocytoma and neuroblastoma.
