BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to report long-term outcomes for a large cohort of patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) who underwent stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) reirradiation. METHODS From 2002 to 2011, 85 patients with previously irradiated HNSCC were treated with SBRT to 94 lesions.
