Post-radiation telangiectasia

Atypical dilation of capillaries, or formation of new ones, in response to radiation. These are typically seen in the laryngopharynx after radiation and are a benign but sometimes impressive-looking tissue change. Often, post-radiation telangiectasia does not appear until a year or more following the end of the course of radiation.
