The subject material in this well-documented text is based on and presented from considerable personal experience by the author from his work at the Memorial Center for Cancer and Allied Diseases, New York. The foreword endorsement by Lloyd F. Cramer, M.D., adds prestige.
This monograph is divided into two sections and an appendix. The first section deals with cancers where the primary treatment is medical (nonsurgical); this first section covers the malignant lymphomas, the leukemias, and plasma-cell myeloma. The second section discusses the medical management where the primary treatment is surgical—neuroblastoma, cancer of the lung, thyroid, ovary, breast, and prostate. A final section, or appendix, reviews the literature and presents the experience at the Memorial Center on the intracavity use of injectable radioisotopes. The appendix was edited by the author but was prepared by Richard Y. Card, M.D., and Ulrich K. Henschke, M.D. The index and bibliography are satisfactory. The
