ABSTRACT
Radiation is a common treatment modality for central nervous system neoplasms. However, secondary tumor development must be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients with new or recurring symptoms after treatment with conventional radiotherapy. A 28-year-old woman developed a cavernous hemangioma about 9 years after brain irradiation for astrocytoma. Clinical and histopathological details are presented, and previous reports of radiation-induced intracranial cavernous hemangioma are reviewed.
Key Words: Astrocytoma; Radiotherapy; Radiation-induced; Cavernous hemangioma
