This study was undertaken to analyze the influence of total skin dose and dose-fractionation schedules on the response rate, survival and skin toxicity of patients with mycosis fungoides [MF] treated with total skin electron irradiation [TSEI]. From 1979 to 1992, 40 patients with MF were treated with TSEI using a modified Christie Hospital technique. Mean follow-up time was 48 months [median 20 months]. 37/40 patients completed TSEI; three died due to non-treatment-related conditions during… CONTINUE READING
