Perhaps, the most alarming and worrisome acute reaction for patients receiving radiotherapy is the radiation-induced mucositis. The high turnover rate and low radiation resistance of the mucosal cells within the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx make them susceptible to destruction from head and neck fractionated external beam irradiation.
