Abstract

1. The authors made a pathological investigation of the case of an ovarian tumor in a horse and decided that it should be considered as an associated case of teratoma (dermoid) and cystadenoma. 2. The principal composing element in the composition of the present ovarian tumor was a unilocular cystadenoma. This was classified to the cystadenoma ovarii glandulare pseudomucinosum in its character but it resembled the form of PFANNENSTIEL'S papillomatous pseudomucincystoma. 3. The teratoma (dermoid) was comprised of three germinal layers, including tissues recognizable as belonging to such parts as epidermis, sebaceous glands (ectodermal tissues), connective tissues, adipose tissues, cartilages, bone, vessels, muscular tissues (mesenchymal tissues), corium and endothelium (mesodermal tissues), etc. In addition to the foregoing points it should be noted that the tumor lacked hairs and nerve tissues.
