Abstract

Grawitz first described a group of tumors of the kidney which resembled the adrenal tissue in histologic elements. He named these tumors or this condition struma supra-renalis aberrata, and from that time on a war has been waged over these forms under various names, all of which are more or less significant. We may say, however, that at present, a tumor of the kidney is recognized, growing out of remnants of the embryonal adrenal gland left behind in the kidney substance itself. Similar tumors are found throughout the whole genito-urinary tract. These tumors are sometimes malignant, but more often benign. They sometimes produce constitutional symptoms, but usually they come to the notice of the physician or surgeon solely on account of their size and location. The case which I wish to present to you very imperfectly and briefly is an illustration of that form of adrenal tumor which produces on
