Radiodermatitis, Chronic

definition

Irradiation of the skin with 12 - 15 Gray or repeated irradiation with a smaller dose result in chronic radiodermatitis after two years or more. The skin is atrophic and shows telangiectasia due to dilation of a reduced skin vasculature. Pigmentation usually is reduced, but there may be small areas of increased pigment production and retention. Radionecrotic ulceration may occur, especially in moist areas.
