Brachytherapy delivers highly conformal radiation dose to the desired region of interest without causing excess dose to the surrounding normal organs. Of the established brachytherapy procedures, surface mould therapy is useful in sites, which are superficially placed and easily accessible. This form of treatment has been in routine use in the treatment of hard palate, chest wall and skin tumors. At our centre, we have used this method in the treatment of rare sites such as external auditory and Bowen's disease of peri-anal region. This paper describes the technical and physical aspects involved in the treatment of these sites.
