A patient with a pancreatic cutaneous fistula subsequent to laparotomy was unresponsive to medical management including intravenous hyperalimentation. Radiation therapy resulted in progressive diminution of volume from the fistula with subsequent complete closure. Radiation thus offers another therapeutic modality for pancreatic fistulas.
