According to the tension and distortion which may exist, various changes in the glands and epithelial investment occasionally result, and owing to consequent inflammation, ulceration, and gangrene the tumor falls off. Spontaneous involution has also been observed. According to (iarre, about 12 per cent, of the multiple fibromata undergo sarcomatous degeneration.
