Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Radiation - Induced Sarcomas(RIS) are rare clinical entity. They arise from the previously irradiated areas with a prolonged latency period. In this case report we present a rare case of radiation induced sarcoma with a brief review of literature. We report radiation-induced sarcoma in a 67-year-old male, involving the left Retromolar Trigone region following treatment of squamous cell carcinoma of tongue with wide excision, neck dissection and post-operative radiation. Diagnosis of radiation induced sarcoma was confirmed by history, latency period and biopsy.
