Palliative radiation treatment used for multiple purposes in a single irradiation field

BMJ Case Rep. 2021 Sep 21;14(9):e244172. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2021-244172.ABSTRACTIn this case report, radiation therapy was performed for bilateral hydronephrosis developed during multiple bone metastases of breast cancer and ileus due to peritoneal dissemination. The patient’s preirradiation creatinine level was 8.2 mg/dL, which decreased by the fourth day after starting irradiation therapy. Creatinine level ultimately decreased to 0.6 mg/dL. Pain due to lumbar spine metastasis alleviated and ileus was resolved, allowing the patient to live at home for approximately 5 weeks. The effect of radiotherapy for bilateral hydronephrosis and gastrointestinal obstruction was rapid and good. Palliative radiation treatment can be used for…
