Abstract

Radiation-induced skin neoplasms often represent a delicate therapeutic problem. Here are described the advantageous results obtained with superficial radiation therapy in the treatment of two cases of scalp basal-cell carcinomas secondary to X-ray epilation for tinea capitis. In selected cases of radiation-induced skin neoplasms and with the choice of techniques able to reduce the carcinogenic potential of radiotherapy, the latter may be employed successfully.
