ROENTGEN-RAY TREATMENT OF THE SPLEEN IN ASTHMA BRONCHIALE: PRELIMINARY REPORT

ROENTGEN-RAY TREATMENT OF THE SPLEEN IN ASTHMA BRONCHIALE: PRELIMINARY REPORT Abstract LYMPHATIC SYSTEM AND ANAPHYLAXIS The question whether or not bronchial asthma can be influenced by roentgen-ray treatment of the spleen is suggested by the following considerations: There is a definite relationship of the lymphatic system, of which the spleen is one of the most important organs, to anaphylaxis. Symmers1 holds the view that anaphylaxis is the cause of sudden death in status thymicolymphaticus. The enlargement of the thymus and the lymphatic tissue that is typical for this disease is regarded by Brown2 as the expression of the abnormally sensitive reaction of the body to foreign proteins. We also know that status thymicolymphaticus is frequently associated with anaphylactic diseases, such as urticaria, asthma, eczema, migraine, hay fever and spastic constipation.3 On the other hand, in some of the anaphylactic conditions changes in the blood picture are found which resemble very much those occurring in status thymicolymphaticus, namely lymphocytosis and eosinophilia.

Abstract

Abstract LYMPHATIC SYSTEM AND ANAPHYLAXIS The question whether or not bronchial asthma can be influenced by roentgen-ray treatment of the spleen is suggested by the following considerations: There is a definite relationship of the lymphatic system, of which the spleen is one of the most important organs, to anaphylaxis. Symmers1 holds the view that anaphylaxis is the cause of sudden death in status thymicolymphaticus. The enlargement of the thymus and the lymphatic tissue that is typical for this disease is regarded by Brown2 as the expression of the abnormally sensitive reaction of the body to foreign proteins. We also know that status thymicolymphaticus is frequently associated with anaphylactic diseases, such as urticaria, asthma, eczema, migraine, hay fever and spastic constipation.3 On the other hand, in some of the anaphylactic conditions changes in the blood picture are found which resemble very much those occurring in status thymicolymphaticus, namely lymphocytosis and eosinophilia.
