Radiation therapy and chemotherapy in malignant sweat gland tumors.


A case of a 62-year-old man with an incompletely resected recurrent adnexal skin tumor is reported. The patient had a complete resolution of tumor with external beam radiation therapy. The tumor metastasized to lung and pleura, and the patient's tumor nodules stabilized with methotrexate. The reported experience with radiation and chemotherapy for this tumor is reviewed and is then contrasted with the observations in this patient. Currently available radiation technics may be of value in managing patients with unresectable tumors.
