• We used concomitant therapy that consisted of cryosurgery and injection of OK 432 (a hemolytic streptococcal preparation) in the treatment of a giant malignant melanoma that primarily arose from the hard palate to the alveolar process in a 69-year-old man. The tumor consequently disappeared completely. One and a half years later, there are no signs of relapse.
