ABSTRACT
A retrospective analysis was performed on 42 patients with carcinoma of the uterine cervix who were treated with external beam(EB) radiation therapy alone at the Department of Therapeutic Radiology, Seoul National University Hospital from March 1979 to December 1988. After whole pelvic field irradiation of 50 Gy, all the patients received additional booster dose of 12-22Gy to the primary tumor. Thirty one received EB radiotherapy alone because of poor geometry for intracavitary application, 5 because of medical problems and 6 because of other reasons. Five year locoregional control rate and file year survival rate were 34.5% and 35.4%, respectively. Five year survivals were 66.7%, 36.4%, 32.8% and 25.0% for stage IIA, IIB, IIIB and IVA, respectively. The response one month after treatment well correlated with prognosis. The incidence of grade 2 and 3 complication was 12% and 10%, respectively. There was tendency of increased complication with advanced stage.
Key Words: Uterine cervix cancer, External beam radiotherapy
