Abstract

Angiosarcoma is a rare malignancy of vascular origin. It can affect any part of the body, head and neck region being probably the most common site of diagnosis. We present here a case of Angiosarcoma of face in a 67-year-old elderly gentleman who was treated with RapidArc – volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) for recurrence after surgery, radiotherapy and chemother-apy. As an alternative to Electron Beam Therapy, RapidArc with skin bolus can be considered for large complex shaped targets with irregular surface and tissue inhomogeneity. RapidArc plan can achieve adequate target coverage with acceptable dose ho-mogeneity and conformity. Keywords:RapidArc; Cutaneous Angiosarcom
