Dose escalation in treatment of a paraspinal tumor using Elekta Synergy® S

Patient history and diagnosis:

A two-year-old female patient was diagnosed with medulloblastoma in 1986 at which time she was treated with a total CNS irradiation to 35Gy and a boost to the posterior fossa to a total dose of 55Gy.
In 2005 the same patient presented with a malignant nerve sheath tumor at the level of thoracic vertebrae 9/10 – probably a secondary cancer 19 years after total CNS irradiation. The patient received surgery and the tumor was partially resected.
