15 patients with cancer of the trachea have been irradiated in 1959-1986 period. 7 patients received radical, 8 palliative radiotherapy. Analysis of results indicates that chance of survival of long duration exists for patients with not advanced adenocystic carcinoma treated with high doses of irradiation (67-70 Gy). In more advanced cases radiotherapy provided good palliative effect in majority of patients.
