di V. Donato, G. De Pascalis, A. Morrone

Long-term survival after organ transplantation is increasing. As a result, many physicians may encounter various solid organ cancers during follow up. We review papers who address their attention on those malignancies and their treatment. Aim of this work is to discuss the role of radiotherapy especially when helped by new technologies in the management of brain, skin, head and neck, lung, breast, prostate and anal cancer. In our institution we are used to treat such patients by Helical Tomotherapy in order to avoid graft and to limit high risk toxicity. As example, we include a scalp and pelvic irradiation in which high dose conformality is linked to best organ sparing. Clin Ter 2013; 164(1):e45-51. doi: 10.7417/CT.2013.1521
