Radiation-induced fibrosarcoma after radiotherapy for osteosarcoma in the mandibular condyle



Radiation-induced fibrosarcoma after radiotherapy for osteosarcoma in the mandibular condyle



Journal of Craniofacial Surgery 23(6): E619-E621



With recent improvements in survival duration after cancer treatment, it is becoming increasingly important to study treatment-related morbidity and mortality. Radiation-induced sarcomas in the irradiated field are well-known potential late sequelae of radiotherapy. These tumors are biologically aggressive. In the case described here, a radiation-induced fibrosarcoma appeared at 20 years after initial surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy for an osteosarcoma of the mandibular condyle. Radiation-induced fibrosarcoma is relatively rare in the head and neck region. The details of this case are presented, and diagnostic and management considerations are described.
