The treatment regime caused cancer and noncancerous growths (meningiomas) on the brain membrane years later among a portion of the patients. A number of research groups in Israel and the world have followed patients who were irradiated as children, to examine tendencies to develop various cancerous growths. In Israel this study was led by Professor Baruch Modan who published an article in the prestigious medical journal The Lancet in 1974 in which Modan determined irrefutably a causal linkage between irradiation of ringworm patients and the appearance of growths on the head and neck.<ref>{{cite journal |author=Modan B, Baidatz D, Mart H, Steinitz R, Levin SG |title=Radiation-induced head and neck tumours |journal=Lancet |volume=1 |issue=7852 |pages=277–9 |year=1974 |month=February |pmid=4130470 |doi=10.1016/S0140-6736(74)92592-6 }}</ref>

In light of Professor Modan's findings, legislation was passed in 1994 in Israel to provide compensation for damage to health resulting from exposure to such ringworm treatment; the law provided compensation for the patient (or their next-of-kin)for those diagnosed with the diseases stipulated in the law and treated for ringworm between January 1, 1946 and December 31, 1960 . The legislation, however, placed the burden of proof on the claimant to submit factual evidence substantiating that they had received treatment – a proviso that generated public criticism.
