After reaching the axillary nodes andthe muscular aponeurosis, mammary can-cer usually becomes generalized and nearlyany tissue in the body may becomeinvolved. The lungs are reached superficially fromthe pleural lymphatics, while from the due to malignancy, the shadows arelikely to be more irregular and moresharply defined. The distribution alongthe bronchial tree is more irregular andthe process is not likely to be more markedin the lower than in the upper lobes. Theheart is usually of normal size and contour.In dust pneumofibrosis, the macroscopicpicture varies according to the characterand quantity of the dust to which the lungsare exposed; and the amount of fibroustissue apparent on the cut surface of alung depends on the length of time the

In this plate thereis marked increase in the hilus areas and a generalhaziness and thickening of the lung markingscharacteristic of pncumohbrosis. The process extendsinto the apex on the right side, and there is an areaof markedly increased density near the right root. bronchial nodes extensions pass along thelymphatics of the blood-vessels. Exten-sion^^to lungs through the blood-vesselsis rare. In the radiograph, the lungs in malig-nancy present several distinct types whichhave been described by Carman, Pfahler,Crane and others. The type with which we are interestedis that in which the deep mediastinalglands are involved, and the processspreads outward along the bronchial tree.
