External Beam Radiotherapy of inoperable Wilson-Jones Angiosarcoma in scalp as monotherapy: Partial Scalp Irradiation with Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy


Author(s): Narendra Kumar Bhalla*, Abhishek Puri, P. Mohandass, D Palanivelu and Pratibha Bhalla

Angiosarcomas of the scalp are a rare and highly aggressive malignant tumor with a poor prognosis. External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT) alone has been rarely used for upfront treatment. We hereby present a case of an elderly gentleman with an inoperable scalp lesion (Wilson-Jones AS) with multiple comorbidities precluding surgery and chemotherapy, and was therapeutically approached with external beam radiation therapy using Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT). A brief course of management and clinical context are discussed herein.
