We present a natural language generator that produces a range of medical reports on the clinical histories of
cancer patients, and discuss the problem of conceptual restatement in generating various textual views of the

the various reports on a given patient, with a high degree of semantic overlap but some necessary amount of distinctive content; and the requirement for paraphrasing at primarily the discourse level.
