Abstract

In a report of cases treated with Roentgen rays, published in The Journal, April 12, 1902. I recorded a case as follows:

Case 24.  —Man, aged 70, referred to me by Dr. William H. Wilder, with extensive carcinoma involving all the structures in and around the orbit of the right eye. The growth had progressed within the cranium when the treatment was begun. The treatment in this case continued two months, with decided amelioration in his condition for awhile, both as regards the appearance of the growth and his pain, but later evidences of rapid intracranial growth appeared and the treatments were discontinued.Looking back at this case, it is Dr. Wilder's opinion and mine that we should have taken out enough of the bone of the orbit to have laid bare the structure beneath, so that the x-rays could have been thrown directly on the intracranial growth. Dr. Wilder
