Excerpt from Long Island Medical Journal, Vol. 3: January-December, 1909 Squamous Epithelioma. Success depends upon the absence of gland ular involvement. Excision at the earliest possible moment followed by X - ray is advised. Time is of the utmost possible moment. Details are given of a case in which the primary lesion healed at once under the rays but the glands even though treated by direct exposure to the rays (a preliminary operation hav ing been performed) were unaffected. Epithelioma of the lips, floor of the mouth, tongue, pharynx and jaw have been treated palliatively; pain was relieved, ulceration cleansed, but there was no real benefit. Of cases of carcinoma one remains well three and one - half years after; one well eighteen months after ex cision followed by X-rays; several unsuccessful cases. Epit/zeliomas in xerodermia pigmentosa, removal of tumor followed by X - ray satisfactory; no recurrence in situ.
