All cases of carcinoma of the breast may be classified in one of five clinical groups, (1) primary operable; (2) primary inoperable; (3) recurrent operable; (4) recurrent inoperable, and the (5) prophylactic group, the last comprising patients referred to us following radical operation of the breast for prophylactic irradiation, there being no obvious evidence of cancerous disease at the time of their admission.

The present paper is a study of recurrent mammary cancer treated in the breast clinic at the Memorial Hospital during the years 1918, 1919 and 1920, comprising a series of 218 patients, practically all of whom have been completely followed up to the present date.

We have included none from the 1921 group, as sufficient time has not elapsed to warrant reporting the results of treatment. The object of this paper is to determine whether or not radiologic treatment of recurrent carcinoma of the breast is justified
