A hard, round, transparent tumour, developed in different parts of the body, more especially in the substance of the eyelids. - Also, the Cicatricula of the egg. Generally, however, in the language of ovologists, the chalazae or poles are, in the egg of the bird, the more dense internal layer of the albumen, which adheres to the yolk, and is continued, in the form of two spirally twisted bands, towards the extremities of the egg. The twisting is considered to be produced by the revolving motion of the egg in its descent through the oviduct.
