Radiation therapy plays adjunctive and curative roles in many gynecologic cancers. The benefits from this treatment, however, are accompanied by complications from radiation therapy. In this article, bowel injury from radiation is the focus of interest. The types, incidence, symptoms, pathophysiology, risk factors, diagnosis, and management of radiation enteritis, especially the chronic type, are described.
