Paragangliomas are rare tumors and very few cases of malignant vagal paraganglioma with synchronous carotid body paraganglioma have been reported. We report a case of a 20-year old male who presented with slow growing bilateral neck masses of eight years duration. He had symptoms of dysphagia to solids, occasional mouth breathing and hoarseness of voice.(More)
Primary synovial sarcoma of kidney is an uncommon neoplasm, metastasizing most commonly to lung. Surgery and/or palliative chemotherapy for pulmonary metastases is commonly used to improve tumor control and survival. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is a relatively new approach to treat pulmonary metastasis, encouraged by the results of cranial and(More)
Objective: To compare dosimetric parameters of 3 dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3 DCRT) and intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in terms of target coverage and doses to organs at risk (OAR) in the management of rectal carcinoma. Methods: In this prospective study, conducted between August 2014 and March 2016, all patients underwent CT simulation(More)
OBJECTIVE Conformal radiation therapy mandates accurate delineation of target volumes, which requires incorporation of modern imaging modalities like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) in addition to conventionally used computed tomography (CT). This can resolve discrepancies in target delineation in head and neck(More)
The primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, although rare, is among the most common extra-nodal lymphomas, considering that gastric lymphomas are more common than intestinal lymphomas. Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) is an aggressive form of B-cell lymphoma that is typically endemic in Africa, while non-endemic cases are found in the rest of the world.(More)
AIMS Evaluation of the dosimetric advantage, if any, of RapidArc (double arc and triple arc [DA and TA]) over standard fixed field intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in gynecologic malignancies. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 20 cases of gynecologic malignancies were included. Static IMRT sliding window, single arc (SA), DA and TA plans were(More)
INTRODUCTION This is a case report of a patient of lymphoma with liver metastasis who had persistent pain and jaundice despite multiple lines of chemotherapy. She underwent palliative liver irradiation. This is an uncommon modality due to fear of radiation induced hepatitis. We reviewed literature available on the use of liver irradiation for palliation and(More)
AIM Aim of the present study was to compare the dosimetric impact of different photon beam energies and number of arcs in the treatment of carcinoma cervix. BACKGROUND Carcinoma cervix is a common cancer in women worldwide with a high morbidity rate. Radiotherapy is used to treat such tumours. Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) is considered superior(More)
