A Case of Breast Cancer Recurrence at the “Match Line”
Received Date: Oct 02, 2015 / Accepted Date: Oct 18, 2015 / Published Date: Oct 31, 2015
In planning for post mastectomy radiation for locally advanced breast cancer, it is important to ensure adequate coverage of the chest wall and regional nodal regions at risk. There is an area that is known to have dosimetric hot and cold spots in between the tangential field of radiation and the supraclavicular field. This is known as the “match line”. In this case report, we report a case of a patient with recurrence in the match line due to less dosage in this region. This is a good case to learn to always ensure adequate coverage in the match line when approving a plan to avoid local recurrence in this region.
