Skin reactions are known adverse effects of radiation therapy. Despite advances in skin care products, there is still a demand for optimal skin care products to improve the therapy of these lesions. The authors report the use of a polylactide-based copolymer (Suprathel, PolyMedics Innovations GmbH, Denkendorf, Germany) as a temporary skin substitute for covering the skin defects of a patient with moist desquamation due to radiation.
