Abstract

The skin and the eyes are prone to radiation-induced injury in fluoroscopic procedures. The degree of injury is related to various exposure and patient-related factors. We report a man who presented with an alopecic patch on the left occipital scalp following an extended fluoroscopically-guided endovascular procedure. He subsequently experienced complete hair regrowth, but was later diagnosed with a cataract in his left eye. To our knowledge this is the first report of both anagen effluvium and cataract development in a patient following fluoroscopic radiation exposure. It is important for dermatologists to be aware of these mucocutaneous side effects of radiation exposure to ensure proper management.
