We shalldescribe under this head the growths known as fibro-plastic, re-current fibroid, and myeloid tumours, with some forms of what wereformerly called medullary sarcoma and others to be hereafternoticed. Definition of Sarcoma.—Sarcoma may be defined as a growthchiefly composed of tissue resembling the immature or embryonicform of connective tissue.

It will thus be evident thatthe structure of sarcoma cannot precisely resemble any tissue ofthe mature body, and cannot, therefore, be ranged with any classof what we have called histioid tumours. There is, however,another pathological product with which it has a considerableanalogy—viz., granulations, which are produced for the repair ofinjuries and the restoration of lost parts ; and since these are onlythe prelim
