Abstract

Lymphangioma. Presented by Dr. H. N. Cole and Dr. J. R. Driver.

S. S., a white man, aged 25, had previously been presented before the Society with an extensive lymphangioma of the left buttock, which had resisted seven attempted excisions and five filtered roentgen irradiations. On Dec. 30, 1930, thirty-nine radium needles, representing a total of 78 mg. of radium, had been implanted in the upper half of the tumor and allowed to remain for one week. At the time of presentation, the treated area had lost its papillomatous appearance. Following the treatment the erythrocyte count had fallen from 4,000,000 to 3,000,000, and the hemoglobin percentage from 90 to 55.

DISCUSSION

Dr. H. N. Cole: This patient has had a profound systemic reaction from radium: acidosis, anemia and fever. I think that these factors should be considered in choosing this type of treatment.
