Abstract

This study highlights gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery (GK-SRS) as boost therapy in a patient with adenoid cystic carcinoma of the parotid involving the skull base and invasion of the facial nerve. Using GK-SRS, dose to the brainstem and temporal lobe were reduced when compared to less conformal radiotherapy techniques.
