Osteoradionecrosis cured with Pentoxifyllin and Tocopherol: A case report

Syed Nabil, Rama Krsna Rajandram, Rifqah Nordin, Nazimi Abdul Jabar: Osteoradionecrosis cured with Pentoxifyllin and Tocopherol: A case report. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 2013; 11: 26–28.

Abstract: The radiation induced fibroatrophic process was recently proposed as an explanation on the pathophysiological pathway for the development of osteoradionecrosis. The use of pentoxifylline and tocopherol has been suggested to be able to reverse this process. The authors report a case of a longstanding osteoradionecrosis in a 60 years old male. The patient was successfully cured after six month of pentoxifylline 400mg and tocopherol 500IU twice a day.
