We present a case of a young 26-year-old woman, who has been suffering from localised scleroderma (morphea) for 15 years. Recently, a lesion on the dorsum of her right foot ulcerated. Based on a CT scan and X-ray a diagnosis of ulcerative osteomyellitis was established. The patient was treated with a combination of antibiotics. Subsequent histological examinations showed granulomatous tissue and chronic inflammatory changes on top of pseudoepiteliomatous hyperplasia. The patients status was deteriorating, which resulted in a limb amputation under the knee...

PURPOSE: To report toxicity and local control in patients with localized prostate cancer, treated with high dose radiotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of 100 consecutive patients with clinically localized prostate cancer treated between june 2003 and may 2006 were reviewed. They received 80 Gy to the target volume with a biphasic technique (3DCRT + IMRT). The median pretreatment PSA was 9. The median follow-up time was 12 months. RESULTS: Eighteen (18%) developed acute Grade 2 rectal toxicity, and no patient experienced acute grade 3 or higher rectal symptoms...

Isolated recurrence of rectal carcinoma have been reported from 7% to 33% with a median of 15. Increasing recurrence is associated with increasing Dukes's stage. Patient who have recurrence after a low-anterior resection are more likely to present with non fixed, surgically correctable lesion versus recurrences after abdominoperineal resection. The most common symptom related to pelvic recurrence is pain, which may be perineal or radiate to the lower extremities. The diagnosis of a locally recurrent rectal cancer was obtained with CT; imaging is the first step to estimate the extent and location of the local tumor growth and the presence or absence of distant metastases...

In eighty patients with glioblastomas surgically treated, there were nine patients (11%) survived for more than three years, and one of the 9 patients survived for six years. The contributing factors responsible for the longteun survival are: (a) extensive removal of the tumor; (b) radioterapy by linear accelarator (40-60Gy) after surgery; (c) post operative chemotherapy with BCNU.

A case report is presented of a patient with lung cancer treated with chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy due to increasing dysphagia. A few months after radioterapy an esophago-tracheal fistula developed, which was diagnosed by a radiological contrast study and esophagofiberoscopy. Post mortem examination did not reveal malignant invasion of the fistula and surrounding tissues. It seems that the fistula was a late complication of radiotherapy.
