Radiation induced sarcoma is a rare but recognized complication of radiotherapy and is associated with poor prognosis, frequently occurs 5 years after completion of treatment. We report radiation-induced sarcoma in a 42 years old male, involving the left parietooccipital scalp region following treatment of brain tumor with craniotomy and post-operative radiation with 60Co machine. Diagnosis of radiation induced sarcoma was confirmed by history, latency period and biopsy. This Radiation induced malignancy was diagnosed only 2 years after completion of Radiotherapy for primary lesion.
