Review of Thiamin Therapy in Space Occupying Lesions
This review describes 4 kinds of tumors diagnosed within a year,1959, in a very small and primitive medical service of a concentration camp in China. Because all laborers suffered from prolonged terribly hard labor with hunger, queer, or unique severe diseases of many kinds involving different systems were commonly found. For example, submandibular gland cyst, Baker’s cyst, lipoma, and osteosarcoma.were encountered within that year. Kidney cysts recently found in a village were also added. As a whole, their therapeutic response to parenteral thiamin was either dramatic or drastic, making surgical removal not necessary. However, it couldn’t be published due to multiple social factors in the past.
