Resumen

La radioterapia estereotáxica fraccionada (RTEF) por su alta precisión y sus ventajas radiobiológicas respecto a la radiocirugía es un arma terapéutica potencialmente útil en el tratamiento de lesiones malignas craneales en pacientes pediátricos. Presentamos el primer tratamiento realizado en nuestra Unidad con esta técnica en un paciente con osteosarcoma de base de cráneo.

Stereotactic fractionated radiation therapy in pediatric patients: radiation-induced cranial base osteosarcoma

Abstract

Stereotactic fractionated radiation therapy is a potentially useful technique for the treatment of cranial neoplasms in pediatric patients due to its high accuracy and radiobiological advantages over radiosurgery. We report here the first treatment performed at our Unit with this technique in a patient with skull base osteosarcoma.
