Abstract

Eleven patients were treated at Montefiore Hospital from 1962 to 1975 for malignant thymic tumor. Radiation therapy was administered in the immediate post-operative period or for recurrence 1-6 years after initial excision. Eight patients were alive and free of disease 2-16 years after radiotherapy.
