|Abstract:||1. 13 (81.3 %) of 16 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia improved when treated chiefly by estrogen, 3 (75 %) of 4 patients improved when treated by deep x-ray therapy, and all 6 patients treated by a combination of the two methods improved. These clinical improvements were temporary. 2. The results of a comparative study in several methods on the treatment of 95 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia were as follows: the proportion of recovery was 95 per cent by prostatectomy, 79 per cent by hormonal and x-ray therapy, 58 per cent by the other conservative therapy, and the lowest was 18 per cent in the patients who were neither treated nor visited again. 3. In 2-8 years after the treatment, 40 of 95 cases were examined. 40 per cent of the patients who were treated by the use of hormone or x-ray, and 80 per cent of the patients who were treated by other conservative therapy had recurrance after the suspension of treatment. 4. It seems that so-called hormonal treatment on patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia can produce only improvement in their subjective symptoms. The mechanisms why the hormonal therapy is more effective than other conservative therapy to this disease was also discussed in this paper. (It is a pleasure to aknowledge my indebtedness to Dr. T.
