Reports on Previous Cases:
Dr. McCarthy: The boy in whom a condition of the mouth was considered to be a fungus infection at the January meeting was later found to have thrush.The man with tuberculous ulcer of the tongue was, if I may use the word, cured by the use of electrodesiccation, after three treatments about a week apart. There remains only a scar on the tip of the tongue.The patient shown here about a year ago with multiple carcinomas of the scalp, which increased profusely at the site of the biopsy, is now receiving roentgen treatments at this hospital; eight treatments have been administered and the patient begins to show improvement. The tumor was the basal cell type.Dr. Downing: In the woman shown at the last meeting, the lupus erythematosus of the face and scalp has cleared up under treatments with the Kromayer lamp under pressure.
