A 64-year-old gentleman was referred to the department of oncology with severe pain in the right ear radiating to the right side of the face. Imaging revealed a large extra-axial expansile lesion, surrounding and encasing the right cavernous sinus extending to the right middle cranial fossa. The patient consulted several neurosurgeons and was recommended stereotactic radiosurgery with Cyberknife® as the best non-invasive modality. The proximity to the critical structures, such as the brainstem, made it challenging for any surgical approach. The patient completed stereotactic radiosurgery with Cyberknife® and is doing well one month after treatment.

The emergence of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has caused a global public health emergency and the pandemic has forced the healthcare givers to organise their work differently to provide the same level of care to their patients. Meticulous planning and implementation of robust infection control, proper triage of patients, patient education and awareness and establishment of good command structure has become the norm. In this article we illustrate how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the oncology department in a tertiary centre in the Caribbean country of Antigua & Barbuda. We describe the changes in treatment decisions for outpatient and inpatient services along with a look at the ethical considerations and the well-being of the oncology team.
