Post radiation reaction only with 12 radiations What to next?



This appears to be Oro cutenious fistula following treatment of Ca. cheek. Treatment to be continued,Surgical correction to be planned which may need wide excision including hemiperesis mandibulectomy if the growth is involving the bone.

No any surgical intervention right nw becz local immunity will be low. manage with regular dressing and give radio protectors lik radivera lotion and anti oxidant, anti biotics continue RT later will see abt surgical review

can u continue RT in Orocutaneous fistula ?
