Case History # 2 Pulmonary carcinoma of the left vertex
Name: R B C Date: 3/3/53
Age: 40 Sex: Male
Weight: 61 kg Height: 1.71 m
Previous History: The patient relates that after a cold the cough persisted, and this is what motivated the visit. The cough began 6 months ago. He consulted a physician who prescribed several medications, but the cough continued to worsen, with the appearance of mucopurulent phlegm and often blood • An x-ray was taken and a dark area was found at the vertex of the left lung.
The cough intensified further and recently the dyspnea has been very accentuated, as has been the case with the hemoptoic expectoration, as well. Faced with this situation, another physician had him undergo radiotherapy, operating to implant radioactive needles. Two ribs of the left hemithorax were removed and the radioactive needles placed in the vertex of the left lung.
The patient’s condition worsened, with increasing pain and dyspnea; he has difficulty in expelling the expectoration which is very sticky; he has lost 25 kg.
The last x-ray shows a metastasis at the base of the right lung, with a continuous fever of between 37.5 and 38°C (see x””ray #1). The patient relates that he has no appetite and that it is very difficult to swallow because his dyspnea increases. The pain in the left medial hemithorax is continuous. The patient smoked very much: 3 packs of cigarettes per day.
Previous illnesses: had malaria in 1943.
Specific symptoms: Digestive. Anorexia, dysphagia.
Respiratory. Very intense dyspnea.
Physical exploration: Three very painful, grape-sized lymph nodes are palpated in each submaxillar region. Two walnut””sized lymph nodes are found in each supraclavivular region. Auscultation of the thorax shows hoarse, creaking, stertor during respiration. The anterior face of the right hemithorax reveals pleural rubbing.
On the posterior face of the thorax, palpation reveals a lack of vocal vibrations in the left hemithorax and a dampening of them in the right. Upon percussion, the base of the right side and all of the left side sound dampened (?matidez). Upon auscultation no respiratiory murmur is heard on the left side, there is creaking stertor. On the right side, the respiratory murmur is only absent at the base; in the rest of the right hemithorax there is hoarse stertor.
Abdomen. There is intercostal retraction and this continues to the abdomen making evident the enormous effort required for breathing.
The respiration of this patient is predominantly abdominal, like that of a newborn infant.
Diagnosis: Pulmonary carcinoma of the left vertex.
Treatment: 25 sessions of Donatian therapy, one per week for 6 months. 48 hours after the application of the first treatment x-ray #2 was taken, already showing some improvement.
On October 15 was released as cured, as x-ray #3 clearly shows.
Evolution of Treatment: The first treatment was given on March 3, 1953. The main signs of the patient are coughing, dyspnea, hemoptoic expectoration, and pain. The result of the first treatment was that the coughing was reduced. as was the dyspnea and the hemoptoic expectoration; the fever disappeared and the patient recovered some of his appetite, since he could swallow better.
Physical exploration. The submaxillary lymph nodes were reduced in volume and less painful. Upon auscultation of the thorax, the creaking stertor are a little less sonorous, the pleural rubbing of the right hemithorax persists on the anterior face of the hemithorax, on the posterior face of the thorax the vocal vibrations are very much diminished, but they have improved on the right side. With percussion, the dull, dampened response is no longer heard on the right side, nor at the vertex of the left lung, though it continues in the rest. Upon auscultation, the respiratory murmur begins to make itself present at the vertex of the left lung, where the creaking stertor are less sonorous; in the rest of this lung and in all of the right the respiratory murmur is already distinguish able and the hoarse stertor of the right lung are diminished.
Abdomen. Intercostal retraction is less, just as In the rest of the abdomen, abdominal respiration, is also less. X-rays are taken and reveal that the base of the right lung has already cleared up as has the vertex of the left. The patient notices satisfactory improvement with each treatment. Finally, at the 24th treatment, none of the symptoms are present and the patient is given one more. X-rays are taken after the last treatment and reveal a perfectly healthy patient, thus corroborating the clinical evidence.

The enormous deviation of the cervix calls attention, and leads to the supposition that the carcinoma is intra- and extra-cervical. The uterus is angled back more than 40°.
Uterine carcinoma that has irradiated to the cervix.
Cervical carcinoma – third degree adenocathoma.
Treatment: We administered 9 sessions of Donatian therapy, one per week.

Evolution of Therapy: The first treatment was on March 18, 1970.
The results of the first treatment were that the pain in the lower abdomen and vaginal secretion diminished, with subsequent loss of pruritus and pain during urination. Vaginal bleeding and pain in the vulva were also less; the leukorrhea was less fetid. Upon vaginal exploration, the cervix was not as hard, large or painful, and the ulcerations were no longer irregular in shape.
After the fourth treatment the patient showed increased appetite, the pain in the lower abdomen is now very sporadic, the bleeding disappeared completely and the secretion is very slight and not fetid. There is no more pollakiuria, dysuria or tenesmus. The ulcerations are no longer bleeding.
