Abstract

Radical surgical intervention is not always possible in vulvar tumours, particularly in infiltrating forms of paraurethral locations. In our case-series, the supplementary performance of Curietherapy, particularly with Radium substitutes (Iridium 192) and following the afterloading method, has enabled us not only to obtain long disease-free periods but also, coupled with the “large volume” of External Radiothernpy, to master forms exceeding the surgical action scope.
