Lymphoblastoma of the Scalp. Presented by Dr. George C. Andrews.
O. W., a man aged 34, was presented at the February 1934 meeting of this society. Since that time a roentgenogram of the skull has been made, which showed no changes in the bony structures but some swelling of the soft tissue. These findings indicate that the firm mass on the left side of the back of the neck was a swollen gland and not a neoplasm of the skull. A biopsy has been made, which showed the lesion to be a lymphoblastoma. The cytologic characteristics were not sufficiently determinate to make it possible to classify the type of growth exactly. The histologic picture suggested leukemia, Hodgkin's disease or mycosis fungoides. Another biopsy will be made and special stains used.The blood count was as follows: hemoglobin, 122 per cent; erythrocytes, 6,300,000; leukocytes, 11,400; platelets, 186,000; neutrophils, 46 per cent;
