“…the gastrointestinal tract, blood, bone marrow and mucocutaneous tissues) [3]. This prolonged fluoroscopic imaging can lead to various radiation injuries of the skin, hair and subcutaneous tissues, which result in inflammation and/or hair loss [4,5,6]. Alopecia is another consequence of acute radiation syndrome and is a relatively rare complication of radiation exposure.…”

“…In previously reported cases, temporary alopecia over the temporoparietal and occipital areas has occurred in interventional neuroradiological procedures involving therapeutic embolization of cerebral arteriovenous malformations and brain circulation aneurysms. Complete spontaneous hair regrowth generally occurred 2–6 months after irradiation and in some patients, the irradiation-induced epilation was misdiagnosed as alopecia areata [6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15]. Our patient presented with a deep scalp ulceration surrounded by poikilodermatous and persistent alopecic area after a single procedure for the endovascular coiling of an anterior circulation aneurysm.…”

“…The most common entrance sites of ionizing radiation associated with cardiac procedures are the scapula, back and lateral trunk under the axilla. Other common locations are the left flank (associated with mesenteric artery angiography and stent placement), the back (associated with TIPS) and the temporoparietal and occipital areas of the scalp (associated with neurovascular embolization) [1,2,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15]. For most patients, clinically significant skin and hair reactions are thought to occur when the skin dose is >5 Gy.…”
