This paper is based on a clinical study of 25 patients given high voltage roentgen therapy in whom the diagnosis of elusive ulcer was made. The various forms of treatment that have been advised and employed, from wide resection of the ulcer-bearing area to fulguration, are legend and it is not necessary to review them at this time. Suffice it to say that when the treatment of elusive ulcer is discussed and all the various forms of treatment are mentioned, the use of roentgen rays is mentioned as casually as are some of the other forms of treatment. So far as we know, a study of a group of similar cases treated with high voltage roentgen therapy has not been reported.
Because of the paucity of reports of the results of treating elusive ulcer with high voltage roentgen rays, and because of the present trend to treat inflammatory conditions elsewhere
