In the years prior to the use of sulfonamides and more especially to the use of penicillin, infrequent reports of "cures" of individual cases of subacute bacterial endocarditis appeared in medical literature. As with subacute bacterial endocarditis in former years, metastatic carcinoma invariably has been fatal so that any therapy which gives a modicum of evidence of checking the spread of this fatal disease deserves consideration. It is, therefore, of interest to report a case of metastatic adenocarcinoma which apparently had been temporarily arrested and by the use of a new chemotherapeutic approach.
