Rights and Permissions

Excellent survival has been reported after combined modality treatment in bulky mediastinal Hodgkin's lymphoma. Late effects such as cardiac morbidity and secondary cancers have been reported after radiotherapy (RT), especially in young adults. Advanced RT techniques such as deep inspiratory breath-hold (DIBH), intensity-modulated RT (IMRT), and volumetric arc therapy have been used recently to reduce these late effects with encouraging results. We hereby present a case report evaluating combined effect of DIBH and IMRT in a young adult with mediastinal lymphoma.
