Radiotherapy for massive, symptomatic splenomegaly has been used in a palliative setting since the early 1990's. Massive splenomegaly may be seen in CML, CLL, hairy cell leukemia and splenic marginal zone lymphomas, prolymphocytic leukemia, myeloproliferative disorders such as polycythaemia rubra, polycythaemia vera or essential thrombocytosis or(More)
A 15-year-old boy presented with visual acuity of 20/200 OD and no light perception OS. The anterior segment of the left eye showed a relative afferent pupillary defect. A large (4.5 x 4.5 x 2.0 mm) infiltrative optic nerve head lesion with dilated vessels was seen OS with disc pallor OD. MRI of the brain and orbit revealed lobulated optic nerve thickening(More)
UNLABELLED Cancer patients who are diagnosed early and or receive effective anti tumour therapy can expect to live for many years after treatment and therefore preservation of normal tissue function is crucial to ensure long term quality of life. Oral complications affect hundred per cent of patients who receive radiotherapy to fields involving the oral(More)
Radiotherapy mainly involves treatment of patients with malignant tumors. Even with recognition of the risks of late skin injury, carcinogenesis, leukemogenesis, and genetic damage from all ionizing radiation; radiation therapy also continues to be accepted treatment for benign diseases. Before initiation, the quality of irradiation, total dose, overall(More)
Metastasis to the adrenal glands is quite common; especially from melanomas, breast, lung, renal and gastro-intestinal tumours. The most common tumour found in the adrenals in post mortem series is a metastatic tumour; incidence ranging from 13 to 27%. The diagnosis of adrenal metastasis is now more common and easier due to staging and subsequent follow up(More)
15547 Background: Brachytherapy is potentially useful in the treatment of carcinoma lip. Small cancers of the lip (less than 2 cm) are treated equally well with surgery or radiation therapy with excellent cosmetic and functional results seen in radiation therapy. METHODS We treated an 18-year old male diagnosed as stage 1 carcinoma lip with curative(More)
Radiation therapy is often used in an attempt to palliate or cure oesophageal neoplasms. However, the radiation tolerance of the normal structures around the oesophagus (heart, lung and spinal cord) restricts the radiation dose that can be delivered. We used a nasogastric catheter to deliver High Dose Intra-luminal Iridium-192 irradiation for carcinoma of(More)
Radiotherapy is a modality used for the treatment of malignant diseases. However it is also used as an effective modality in the treatment of many benign disorders. It is generally not the first choice of therapy in non malignant conditions but usually used when other modalities have failed or may induce more side effects. Benign disorders of the eye can(More)
