Abstract: Brain pacemaker (BPM) systems are similar to cardiac pacemaker (CPM). On CPM, damage caused by ionizing radiation may lead to failure of the device. We report here a clinical situation of a patient treated with BPM and receiving cerebral radiotherapy. Strategies for protection of BPM from radiation damages are discussed.
