Penagaricano JoseA, Linskey MarkE, Ratanatharathorn Vaneerat
Brain irradiation is commonly used for many primary brain malignancies. We will present two cases of post-radiation vasculopathy of large arteries of patients who received radiation therapy to the brain as part of their tumor management. We will underscore the significance of this condition and suggest the overall management of patients receiving brain radiation at an early age.
