Kasthoori, J.J.; Wastie, M.L. (2006) Radiation-induced osteosarcoma of the maxilla. Singapore Medical Journal, 47 (10). pp. 907-9. ISSN 0037-5675Full text not available from this repository.
Radiation-induced sarcomas are well-known though uncommon potential late sequelae of radiation therapy. We report irradiation-induced osteosarcoma involving the maxilla following treatment of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in a 44-year-old man who presented with painful cheek swelling. Radiographs and computed tomography showed a large destructive lesion of the left maxilla. Diagnosis of osteosarcoma was confirmed by excision biopsy.
