Abstract

Therapeutic radiation for malignant conditions is known to cause sarcomatous change in an irradiated field after a latent period; equally this change may occur following radiotherapy to benign conditions which may result in a more difficult management problem later. Radiotherapy to benign conditions should be reserved for use after failure of conventional surgery or other interventional techniques.
