Radiation recall pneumonitis

(Fr: PnP de rappel en territoire préalablement irradié). Radiation recall pneumonitis is when pulmonary opacities develop exactly in the previously-irradiated area of the chest and lung, following the administration of adriamycin, carmustine, doxorubicin, etoposide, gefitinib, gemcitabine, paclitaxel or trastuzumab. Radiation recall on the skin and esophagus can also occur (PMID 24965480)
