Alopecia due to radiation has remained a widely accepted aspect of radiotherapy. We present an unexpected clinical scenario, where a patient with left lung stage IIIB nonsmall cell adenocarcinoma, treated with radiochemotherapy achieved a complete response and developed an obscure late effect in terms of paradoxical hypertrichosis in the radiation portals. The paper presents plausible hypothesis for this unusual phenomenon.

Abstract in Chinese

放疗后多毛症:一个悖论 辐射引起脱发仍然是一个被广泛接受的放疗方面问题。我们提出了一个意想不到的临床情况,一个左肺癌ⅢB期非小细胞腺癌,放化疗治疗的患者达到完全缓解,并产生了一个难以理解的矛盾的多毛症延迟效应。本文对这种不寻常的现象提出了合理的假设。 关键词:脱发,晚期效应,放疗后多毛症,放疗
