FERNANDEZ RAMOS, Oscar et al. Intratumoral treatment of a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with severe cutaneous manifestations. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2005, vol.34, n.4, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3046.
The case of a 70-year-old white patient that was admitted for presenting adenic syndrome and multiple cutaneous lesions that predominated in the left upper limb, was reported. A diffuse large-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was diagnosed. The patient received cytostatic polychemotherapy that improved his general state, but not the cutaneous lesions. It was decided to apply intratumoral treatment with metrothexate, which produced the disappearance of the lesions and an improvement of the general state and of the quality of life of the patient.
