Some Histopathological Aspects of Therapy

  • L. Michaels


Radiotherapy is usually given as first choice of treatment in squamous carcinoma of the larynx. If that fails, recourse to total laryngectomy is often made. There are less radical operations which may be used to eradicate the carcinoma, and it has been suggested that some cases may be treated primarily by such conservative measures without radiotherapy.
