Extramedullary hematopoiesis is encountered in some severe anemic conditions. Very rarely it may cause neurologic symptoms, leading to spinal cord or cauda equina compression. Two patients with thalassemia who developed neurologic complications are described. Diagnosis was based on clinical findings, CT scan and magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI). The two(More)
The management of pregnant women with active Hodgkin's disease (H.D.) should be individualized depending on the stage, the presence of infradiaphragmatic involvement, and age of gestation. Seventeen women aged 16-31 years with coexisting H.D. and pregnancy were followed between 1969 and 1982. H.D. was diagnosed during pregnancy in 15 patients and two became(More)
Thirty-seven patients with advanced Hodgkin's disease have been treated for greater than or equal to 3 months with a protocol consisting of alternate monthly courses of MOPP (mechlorethamine, Oncovin [vincristine], procarbazine, and prednisone) and ABDV (adriamycin, bleomycin, DTIC, and vinblastine) with local radiotherapy (RT) to areas of originally bulky(More)
Eighty-four evaluable patients with advanced Hodgkin's disease (Stages IIB, IIIA age greater than 35 or mixed cellularity or lymphocyte depletion histology, IIIB, IVA, and IVB) were treated with alternating monthly MOPP and Adriamycin, bleomycin, dacarbazine, and vinblastine (ABDV). Radiation therapy (RT), 2000 rads in two weeks, was given to areas of(More)
Since 1969, 184 previously untreated and evaluable adult patients with Hodgkin's disease, staged as I (43) or II (141), have been treated. Eighty patients were part of the National Hodgkin's Disease Study, randomly assigned to receive radiotherapy to either an involved (39) or extended field (41). In a subsequent single-arm study, 104 patients were treated(More)
The efficacy of multimodality treatment of gastric lymphoma was examined in a retrospective study of 46 patients treated at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center from 1971 to 1982. The principal treatment plan consisted of surgical resection of the gastric lymphoma (n = 36) where feasible, followed by radiation therapy of the whole abdomen (n = 23)(More)
A retrospective study of 51 patients treated for primary gastric lymphoma was made to evaluate the influence of clinicopathologic features and the method of treatment on survival. The lymphocytic type of tumor showed a higher survival rate than the histiocytic type. Tumors that involved only the gastric wall resulted in a five-year survival rate of 62%, as(More)
