Abstract
The study of tumors in primitive groups of people at times discloses peculiarities of incidence. Further study of these peculiarities may add a little to the general understanding of tumors. The incidence and variety of malignant tumors among Eskimos are largely unknown. Fog-Poulsen was the first to report a malignant tumor in an Eskimo in 1949. Brown et a1. gave the second report of a malignant tumor in an Eskimo in 1952. Gottmanns has recently reported autopsies on 57 AlaskanEskimos that revealed 11 malignant tumors. In the present paper, 76 malignant tumors are reported that were diagnosed in AlaskanEskimos during the first 6 years of operation of the Alaskan Native Hospital in Anchorage.
