Acute radiation enteritis causing small bowel obstruction.

Abstract:

:Although much is known about the late intestinal side effects of radiation, comparatively little has been published about its acute complications. We present a case of a small bowel obstruction due to acute radiation enteritis. As radiotherapy continues to expand its role in the management of oncological disease, clinicians should remain alert to the resulting undesired effects.
