Investigations about late effects of exclusive radiotherapy of tumors of the epipharynx

Journal Article:

Abstract

The late effects of ionizing radiation after radiotherapeutic healing of malignant tumors are of great interest. A report is given on sixteen patients with a malignant tumor of the epipharynx, who had been exclusively treated by radiotherapy and are regarded as cured. Only four of these patients had no complaints when examined, the others presented symptoms which were partly due to radiotherapy. The most important symptoms were rhinitis sicca and pharyngitis sicca induced by radiation. The complaints now indicated by the patients and the results of thorough clinical examinations are discussed and compared to communications of literature.
