Squamous Cell Epithelioma, Ten Years After Treatment. Presented by Dr. A. Benson Cannon.

R. M., a woman aged 42, is presented to show the results of treatment of an epithelioma 10 years ago. She was previously presented before this Society on Feb. 28, 1939 (Arch. Dermat. & Syph.40:510 [Sept.] 1939), with a squamous cell epithelioma located on the upper lip just below the angle of the nose. The lesion had been present for four weeks at that time. A biopsy report showed squamous cell epithelioma. The lesion was of interest because of the clinical resemblance to chancre. No enlarged glands were palpated. The patient had had radiotherapy for acne vulgaris 10 years previously. There were no signs of excess irradiation.

The patient was given roentgen ray irradiation, 200 r daily for 10 days, followed by 300 r for nine days, for a total of 4,700 r.
