A varied and confusing picture is presented by the breast tumor first described by Chelius1 in 1828 as a "cystic hydatid." Several specimens were described in more detail by Johannes Müller2 in 1838 under the name of "cystosarcoma phyllodes." The confusion regarding the character and behavior of this interesting tumor is well brought out in the list of names employed in describing the 121 examples which have been reported to date. These various names are as follows:

Cystic hydatid—Chelius1 1828

Cellular hydatid—Cooper3 1829

Cystosarcoma—Fischer4 1835

Cystosarcoma phyllodes—Brunn 1838 (published by Müller2)

Serocystic tumor—Brodie6 1846

Cystic sarcoma—Erichsen7 1852

Telangiectatic cystosarcoma—Amado8 1872

Proliferous cystosarcoma—Gross9 1874

Intracanalicular papillary fibromyxoma—Bigelow10 1876

Intracanalicular sarcoma—Iverson11 1877
