A satisfactory classification of ovarian tumors has not yet been established, although much has been accomplished recently by correlating the clinical and pathologic features of these neoplasms. In reviewing over 350 true neoplasms of the ovary, a group of 6 has been separated on the basis of their pathologic characteristics. Schiller has recently described a similar group of cases and believes them to be derived from mesonephric tissue. It is the purpose of this paper to describe the clinical and pathologic characteristics of these tumors and to discuss their histogenesis.
