Radiation myelopathy is a severe consequence of radiation to the spinal cord which rarely occurs with standard doses of radiation. This entity commonly results in different degrees of sensory and motor deficits. Diagnosis of radiation myelopathy in women with gynecologic malignancies may increase with the concomitant use of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. This paper reports the effect of this combination therapy in a 60-year-old woman with fallopian tube carcinoma.
