Hodgkin'sDisease. Presented by Dr.Henry C. Shaw.
H. F., a white man, aged 30, whose family history was irrelevant, said that in 1918 there was noticed a painless swelling of the glands of the anterior cervical chain of lymph nodes. One year later a biopsy was performed and a diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease was made. At this time there was roentgen evidence of mediatinal tumors. Since then he remained under the care of his local physician.
He was first seen at the Barnard Free Skin and Cancer Hospital in June. 1930, when he complained of a large swelling in the left side of the neck, cough and a feeling of substernal oppression. The original diagnosis was confirmed by x-ray pictures and a biopsy of one of the cervical glands. The patient was placed under the care of the roentgen department and received deep roentgen therapy at intervals.
