Traitement du cancer de la base de la langue. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract In a review of the treatment of cancer of the base of the tongue, the authors deal primarily with the epithelialomas. They classify their lesions as to their site of origin, size, extension to adjacent structures, and metastasis to the lymph nodes. Indications for the various types of therapy are based on this classification. There is a detailed description of the various surgical approaches and the different modalities of radiation therapy—high voltage, cobalt, betatron, and radium puncture. The results in their clinic and those of many other cancer centers are summarized in detail, so that one can readily evaluate the various methods of treatment. This monograph is extremely interesting to those that are confronted with these problems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png A.M.A. Archives of Otolaryngology American Medical Association
