    Increased knowledge about the course of lymphogranulomatosis and technological progress in radiotherapy during the past 20 years have brought permanent recovery for a major part of patients from this disease which had been infaust before. The supplementation of the local radiotherapy by the systematic effects of chemotherapy enables us at the same time to control the infiltrations and disseminations which cannot be manifested clinically especially in malignant forms and later stages. The good healing results obtained presuppose careful clinical examination of the patient and attentive care during the therapy with regard to the potential complications of radio- and chemotherapy. As potential complications which may occur according to the method used we may name damage to the kidneys, radiopneumonia or pulmonal fibrosis, myocarditis or pericarditis, oeosophagitis, enteritis, and hepatitis. Relatively seldom we see the permanent depression of the bone marrow, induction of leucaemia, and myxoedema. All these complications can occure more frequently in the case of additional chemotherapy.

    To make a comparative morphometric analysis of the nuclei and nucleoli of tumor cells in lymphogranulomatosis (LGM), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) for differential diagnosis of these lymphomas. Biopsy material (lymph node biopsies) was frozen in hexane, fixed and stained, then microscopic pictures were made. Mean area of tumor cell nuclei in LGM was 97.25 +/- 68.77 mcm2, in DLBCL and ALCL--55.89 +/- 20.13 mcm2 and 70.31 +/- 34.64 mcm2, respectively. The area differences were significant (p nucleoli of the former are larger than those of the latter. Mean area of the nucleoli in DLBCL was 3.05 +/- 1.58, in ALCL--5.53 +/- 4.94 mcm2. The differences are significant (p Nucleoli in Hodgkin 's cells are significantly larger than those in the tumor cells in ALCL and DLBCL and the nucleoli with the area more than 12 mcm2 can be used in differential diagnosis between LGM and DLBCL but not between LGM and ALCL.

    37 children with M. Hodgkin received radiotherapy to the involved cervical lymph nodes. Localized growth disturbances and muscle atrophies were observed as late effects. 12 children had severe sequelae and 19 patients moderate late effects. The effects were stronger the younger the children were at the time of irradiation. (author)

    The radiological and scintigraphic results of 52 patients suffering from granulomatosis and pericarditis, the latter as a consequence of radiotherapy in 30 cases, were compared. The radiological examination after application of an artificial pneumopericardium allows the interpretation of both the quantity of the exudate and the condition of epicardium and pericardium. Applying additional scintigraphic methods central hemodynamic parameter can be examined; thus in exsudative pericarditis s decrease of the cardiac output and of the cardiac index could be stated intensifying with increasing exsudation.

    The purpose of the investigation was to study the effect of lithium carbonate on the time-course of changes in neutrophil leukocytes of the peripheral blood. Sixty-nine patients afflicted with Hodgkin's disease were entered into the study. Greater preservation of the content of neutrophil leukocytes was attained with the use of lithium carbonate coupled with radiation therapy. At the same time administration of lithium carbonate in the interval between the stages of anticancer treatment brought about an increase in the neutrophil count.

    Some examples for the diagnosis of various diseases of liver and spleen after intravenous (cats, dogs) or intraportal (rodents) injection of lecithin-cholesterol liposomes containing the water soluble contrast medium verografin are described. Tumors of 1 mm were found in the spleen of mice with lymphogranulomatosis, hepatomas of 3-5 mm in rats and lesions of 10 mm in cats with turpentine abscesses. The application of liposomes containing radiographic contrast media offers good possibilities for the diagnosis of liver and spleen. (author)

    The evaluation of remote results of the complex treatment (polychemotherapy plus radiotherapy) for identification of the forecasting factor which may be applied, by stratification into the risk groups, is carried out. The group of 334 children up to 15 years with lymphogranulomatosis, subjected to not less than 2 cycles of inductive polychemotherapy and consolidating radiotherapy, is analyzed. The irradiation was conducted at the radiotherapeutic devices ROCUS LUE-25 and LUEV-15 M1. The complete remission after the treatment program was fixed by 95.1% of the patients the partial remission-by 6.3%; no effect was noted by 0.6% of the patients. Actuarial 10-year survival constituted 85.9%, the frequency of nonrelapsing flow - 74.3% [ru

    266 67 Ga scintigrams of 93 patients in treated and untreated states were evaluated and compared to the histological, radiological, and clinical data. A difference in the storing characteristics of the various histological subtypes of lymphogranulomatosis could not be proven. In the intrathoracic space, radiogallium scintiscanning is of the same value as radiological diagnosing due to its congruency with the X-ray picture in 88.6% of the untreated and 94.2% of the treated cases. Comparing to the X-ray picture, radiogallium scintiscanning provides also additional information: a statement concerning the vitality of the Hodgkin tissue thus informing also about the efficiency of the treatment carried out. After an effective radio or chemotherapy, the scintigraphs show no more scintigraphically provable storing foci. In the abdominal region, the method does not permit to make sufficient statements on affection of liver, spleen, or the abdominal lymph node stations. For our group of patients, we calculated 0.3% falsely positive and 4.0% falsely negative results. The results we obtained emphasize the value of 67 Ga-scintiscanning in the primary staging and therapy control of the morbus Hodgkin as well as in diagnosing relapses. (orig./MG)F [de

    The present volume IX/5a represents a further addition to the series of Encyclopedia on radiodiagnostics of the escophagus and respiratory systems, the respiratory tract, and the mediastinum. The section on 'Pulmonary Tuberculosis' containing excellent illustrations was compiled with ample and objective criticism by H. Blaha. The pathologic, radiologic, and clinical aspects of 'Sarcoidosis' were effectively treated by W. Schermuly and H. Behrend who produced a comprehensive review that will remain authoritative for several years to come and will serve as an excellent reference source. The chapter on 'Lymphogranulomatosis of the Thoracic Organs' by M. Loew takes the entire region of the body into consideration and summarizes the current state of knowledge. With his extensive article on 'Tumors of the Chest Wall,' V. Schneider has rendered a great service not only to radiologists but also to all specialists who must concern themselves with diagnostic problems involving the thorax and its organs. The topographic approach to all tumors and a critical differential diagnostic evaluation of the X-ray findings are of assistance in practical clinical work. All of the articles report on the current knowledge of radiologic, pathologic-anatomic, and clinical aspects of the specific disorders or disease groups. The many illustrations included are graphically descriptive of the radiologic examination methods and also serve to point out the diagnostic and differential diagnostic difficulties. This first comprehensive radiologic treatment of frequently occurring pulmonary diseases and their differential diagnostics will remain a standard work in world literature. (MG/orig.).
