The reporter is a cardiologist who has worked in Intensive Therapy Unit for fifteen years, and in the last five years has changed his medical preconceptions. Three years ago, he and his wife, a biologist, founded an institute which practices Orthomolecular medicine.

The patient is a fifty-one-year-old white male, engineer who has suffered from melanoma in his cervical area for three years. He underwent surgery and it returned; was operated on once more, and his lymphatic net was taken out. He then began taking synthetic interferon in order to avoid new metastases. However, a new nodule appeared in his left lung six months later. He was given a tomography with dirigible nodule puncture, and the tissue sample confirmed melanoma nodule metastasis after histological analysis. His oncologist told him to stop taking synthetic interferon, to go back home and wait for any resolution, saying to him that there was nothing to be done. He was very ill, very thin, desperate and frustrated when he told his son to make an appointment with our office.
