Abstract

Mixed tumors of mesodermal origin, polypoid in form, often termed grapelike sarcomas, and malignant in character, are found in the vagina and also in the uterine cervix of young children. They occur more frequently in the vagina; for, while only four undoubted cases of primary mixed tumors of the cervix in young subjects have been reported, there are records of sixteen cases of primary mixed neoplasms of the vagina in children from 6 months (Hauser1) to 7 years (Demme2) of age. In addition, there are two cases in the literature in which both cervix and vagina were involved in the growth; and, although it is asserted that the cervix was the original seat of the tumor, the description of the organs at necropsy makes it impossible to substantiate this claim. The case herein reported, then, becomes the third in which the cervix was the probable seat of the
