Rapid regression of all symptoms was obtained after moderate chemotherapy in two women aged 69 and 77 years respectively with malignant non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Cervico-facial locations of these tumors are discussed in relation to definition, etiology, geographic factors, genetic markers, and associated immunologic disorders. Diagnosis requires a series of(More)
Russet Burbank plants subjected to a short period of stress produced a greater per cent of malformed tubers than plants grown continuously under moisture stress. Various root medium stress levels up to 5 bars did not differentially affect tuber shape. The respiration rate of tuber tissue discs was affected by various environmental factors such as air(More)
A session of the "Société de Stomatologie et de Chirurgie maxillo-faciale de France" was devoted to a discussion of diagnostic difficulties in cases of mandibular bone tumors. Several case-reports were presented as a basis for comments on clinical and radiologic criteria of the benign or malignant nature of bone tumors, these being the foundation on which(More)
In this retrospective trial we examined 142 patients with advanced unresectable cancer, who had bowel obstruction, bleeding, bowel lesion and abscesses and who were treated with different surgical procedures (resection, bypass, enterostomy). Mean survival rate was 8.6 months (range: 0-57 months). The mortality rate reached 21.7%. Surgical reintervention was(More)
Possible relationships between Moschcowitz's disease and acute systemic lupus erythematosus are analyzed based on findings in one case. Initial exclusively buccal symptoms suggested a diagnosis of lupus, and then of Moschcowitz's disease leading to a fatal outcome. The main points discussed relate to diagnostic difficulties to enable distinction between the(More)
Several cases are reported of cervico-facial suppuration of buccodental origin, the infection being due to Eikenella corrodens, a facultative anaerobic germ that is difficult to culture. Conditions appropriate to the growth of these germs are discussed with respect to etiological, bacteriological and clinical factors. Therapy is outlined and a selective(More)
Surface netting of Russet Burbank potato tubers was modified by selected soil temperatures and minimum soil moisture levels. A soil temperature of 45 F completely eliminated skin netting. Russeting was also reduced by soil temperatures of 90 and 60 F. Allowing the soil to dry to 25% of available soil moisture or less at 90 and 60 F reduced skin netting.

Three cases treated by medical means are reported, and reports in the published literature briefly reviewed. --Anatomically the temporal styloid process is related to four main structures : the carotid artery and vein, and the facial and glossopharyngeal nerves. --Hypotheses as to the pathogenesis of these lesions are based on clinical findings. The(More)
