X-Ray burns on a thigh, from extended exposure made for a swelling due to a peripheral sarcoma of the femur. The X-ray exposure actually aggravated the tumor and made it worse. X-ray examination showed that the sarcomatous masses had extended into the soft tissue, making amputation of the leg necessary. 
On the periphery of the burns, the brown area shows healing in the less seriously injured parts. On the worst parts (the white center), ulceration has occurred.
