Cardiac Tumors in Laboratory Rodents — Comparative Pathology

  • Cornelia Hoch-Ligeti
  • Harold L. Stewart
Part of the Cancer Growth and Progression book series (CAGP, volume 5)


This survey of spontaneous and induced cardiac tumors of rats, mice, guinea pigs and hamsters is based on a critical review of the literature and the hitherto unpublished data of a study of the material accessed of the NCI Registry of Experimental Cancers. The frequency of cardiac tumors in laboratory rodents, the location within the heart, the histologic classification and heredity aspect are compared with these features in humans with cardiac tumors.
