Fifty-one patients, 41 with squamous cell carcinoma and 10 with adenocarcinoma, were treated with selective intraarterial infusion of mitomycin C (MMC). Eleven of these received a total amount of 40 mg of MMC on four occasions. A 50% decrease of the tumor area was demonstrated in 5 patients and 20-50% decrease in 3. In the other 3 patients the tumor could not be exactly delineated due to adjacent atelectatic lung tissue or growth close to the mediastinum, but there was marked regression.
