Abstract

Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is a highly effective treatment for medically inoperable patients with early stage NSCLC. Because of its noninvasive nature and favorable toxicity profile, the use of SABR continues to expand for eligible patients. We present here two uncommon cases of peripheral neuropathy secondary to SABR-induced injury to recurrent laryngeal and phrenic nerves, resulting in unilateral vocal cord and diaphragmatic paralysis, respectively.
