As the crypt epithelium dies, there is a lack of cell replacement to the surface villi resulting in loss of mucosa and villous atrophy in 2-4 weeks. The lining surface cells become flat and focally ulcerated. These changes vary in intensity according to the location of the loop involved, the radiation dose and the time interval between the doses. After the full course and in mobile loops, the surface epithelium and the villi will be restored to normal in 2-3 weeks, while in fixed segments the recovery may be partial with persistence of villous atrophy and abnormally cystic crypts.

Late disease inay manifest itself months or years later and is characterised by haematuria, bladder contracture or necrosis (Wallace 1959). Pathology of Radiation Injury 31 Fig. 11. Late radiation cystitis showing diffuse squamous metaplasia of the vaginal (glycogenated and clear cell) type. (H&E x20). The bladder is shrunken and fibrotic. The mucosa shows hyperaemic ulceration chiefly on the posterior wall above the interureteric bar. Occasionally ulceration is covered by a greyish membrane (Villasanta 1972).

Changes only occur in the small bowel that has been within the radiotherapy field and the commonest site is in the ileum. The changes are the result of fibrosis and necrosis due to radiation endarteritis (Hasleton et al. 1985), and may occur throughout the bowel wall. The mucosal folds become thickened and straightened and so the valvulae conniventes become more prominent (Fig. 5). Mucosal ulceration, Fig. S.
