75 consecutive patients with untreated, unresectable, localized bronchogenic carcinoma were treated by a split course external beam radiotherapy. The survival rates of 96 and 43% at 1 and 2 yr compares very favorable with those reported in the literature. The tumor dose of 4,500 rads in 15 fractions and in an overall time of 5 wk was very well tolerated.
