Abstract

E. Pittard gives in the first place a definition of "race", urgently needed at present. The author shares the opinion of De Quatrefages that the races have their pathological features as well as their clearly defined anatomical characteristics. The racially conditioned frequency of cancer is made evident by the example of the distribution of cancer in Italy and France. Finally the author argues for a statistic of cancer on ethnical and not exclusively national basis.
