This 64-year-old esophageal cancer patient suffered grade 4 severe acute radiation-induced esophagitis (SARE) after only 10 fractions of radiotherapy. And he developed symptomatic radiation-induced pneumonitis (SRP) only 4 days after radiotherapy (RT) and then got infected of pneumocystis carinii during RT treatment. a: Endoscopy reveals diffuse mucosal erosion, sloughing, ulceration, and hemorrhage, and the endoscopic secretion culture revealed the fungal infection. b: Computed tomography (CT) image before radiotherapy; c: CT image that 6 days after radiotherapy; d: CT image that got infected of pneumocystis carinii during RP treatment.
