Abstract

This manuscript presents a case of early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the left buccal mucosa treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) followed by a high-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy boost. With limited literature available on HDR mold (stent) radiotherapy for oral cancer, a discussion on the issues encountered during treatment planning and delivery may prove to be insightful for facilities faced with a similar challenge.
