Short-course hypofractionated radiochemotherapy for unresectable locally advanced cancer of the base of tongue: Palliation only? A case report and short review of the literature
We present a case of unresectable cancer of the base of tongue treated with hypofractionated 3D conformal radiotherapy and concomitant chemotherapy. Based on the excellent tumour response in this radiotherapy regimen and international experience in short course treatments we shortly reviewed, we propose that this therapeutic approach could be considered in a curative setting for patients unsuitable for the a standard long course radiochemotherapy schedule. © 2014.
