Abstract

Re-irradiation of paraspinal tumors represents a very challenging issue for the radiation oncologist. Previous absorbed radiation dose, received by the spinal cord, is often limiting for using newly high radiation therapeutic doses. Stereotactic Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) allows the delivery of high-dose radiation to the tumor volume with minimal toxicity for the spinal cord. This technique renders feasible high conformal dose distributions to concave shape tumors that are wrapped around the spinal cord. In this paper we describe a clinical case, treated with IMRT in our institution, after a local and previous full dose radiation therapy. Endpoints planned as adequate dose distribution, optimal local tumor control, certified by adequate follow up, performance status improvement and absence of radiation induced injuries, were successfully obtained.
