Abstract

Arterial occlusion is a late complication of radiotherapy usually seen in extracranial vessels following treatment for head and neck malignancy. Determining the etiology behind vessel occlusion can be difficult and involves consideration of several factors. We present a case of radiotherapy induced aortic occlusion and discuss the relevant clinical and imaging factors that allow the diagnosis to be made.
