Abstract AT THE Annual Meeting of the American Society for Head and Neck Surgery at Hollywood, Fla in April 1963, a preliminary report of 34 cases of carcinoma of the mobile portion of the tongue treated by radical neck dissection and simultaneous insertion of radium implant was presented.1 These lesions were confined to the anterior two-thirds of the tongue and did not extend beyond the lingual V formed by the circumvalate papillae. The neoplasms varied in size from 1.5 cm to 5.5 cm and were both of the exophytic or infiltrative type. Smaller lesions were treated by excisional biopsy with a wide margin and were not included in this study. Analysis of our original 34 cases with a follow-up of two to five years showed that complete regression of the primary carcinoma of the tongue may be achieved by interstitial radiation in 60% of the entire group, regardless of the References 1.
