Bottom Line: We present a case of cervical cancer treated by concurrent chemoradiation.In radiation therapy part, the combination of the whole pelvic helical tomotherapy plus image-guided brachytherapy with megavoltage computed tomography of helical tomotherapy was performed.We propose this therapeutic approach could be considered in a curative setting in some problematic situation as our institution.

Figure 1: Diagnostic computed tomography of pelvis in stage IIB, cervical cancer patient.

Mentions: A 39-year-old woman came with abnormal vaginal discharge for 3 months. Per vaginal examination revealed 5 cm in diameter lesion on the cervix with bilateral parametrial involvement. Biopsy revealed squamous cell carcinoma, moderately differentiated. CT at pelvis reported enlarged uterine cervix with circumferential thickening of the upper vagina (Fig. 1). With discussions, she preferred to treat with HT plus IGBT. However, our CT simulator has broken since September 2014 and needed to replace with another one.
