  • Look Inside

 A woman, aged 53, complained of a swelling around the left earlobe which gradually enlarged in size within the last 2 years. The swelling extended posteriorly, anteriorly and inferiorly around the ear lobe. Pathological examination revealed it to be an eosinophilic granuloma.

 The tumor was treated with Co60 irradiation with the total exposure of 5,200 r. The respose was immediate with a complete remission; the patient was discharged from further medical care.

 But, soon thereafter recurrence of the growth occurred. The growth became gradually enlarged, even larger than originally, in spite of administration of steroid therapy in combination Co60 irradiation.

 The growth was finally exterpated by surgical intervention. Since then there has been no recurrence at present 1 year after the surgery.
