Abstract

Aim

We report a unique presentation of a late side effect associated with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) of the lung.

Summary

The case of a 65-year-old male who developed left-sided vocal cord paralysis after two courses of SBRT for squamous cell lung carcinoma is presented. The patient developed this late toxicity 15 months after his second treatment, which was to address a recurrence in the perihilar region of the left upper lobe.
