abstract

  • Even after long intervals after radiotherapy, it is important to consider radiation vasculopathy and radionecrosis as differential diagnoses of more common conditions. Histological confirmation of a delayed radiation injury in the absence of any evidence of neoplasia or vascular abnormality has allowed appropriate prognosis and management to be formulated with confidence in each of these patients.
