Radiation recall is a rare side effect observed in patients treated with certain medications after radiation therapy. This effect mimics a radiation-induced tissue reaction in expression; however, it occurs outside of the traditional time course and only in the presence of a catalyzing agent. The authors report a case of radiation recall resulting from an interaction between radiation delivered during a fluoroscopically guided hepatic chemoembolization for treatment of metastatic carcinoid tumor and the oral chemotherapeutic agents capecitabine and temozolomide administered 7 weeks later.
