One of the standard treatments in laryngeal cancer is radiotherapy (RT). Many short- and long-term complications can occur in the region that has received radiotherapy. Definitive treatment of the emerging complications is still debatable, and treatment is challenging for radiation oncologists and ear nose throat specialists. Recently, hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) has become a promising alternative for the treatment of these complications. The aim of this report is to discuss the effectiveness of HBOT in the treatment of late-term RT-related potential complications in a patient with laryngeal cancer.
