Peyronie's disease, although benign with its pathological characteristics, is an important health problem due to its painfull disease course and adverse effects on patients' sexual life. Various treatment modalities has been proposed for its treatment but some of them needs invazive procuderes while others have severe systemic side effects. At this point of view, radiation therapy with its negligable side effects and well proven effectivity, serves as a good treatment choice. In the present study, trials about radiation treatment of Peyronie's disease has been summarized.
