  A design study of a compact superconducting cyclotron for hadrontherapy is carrying out at Laboratori Nazionali del Sud of Catania. This machine is able to accelerate light ions with a charge to mass ratio of 0,5 up to the maximum energy of 300 AMeV. Light ions like Carbon will be extracted by an electrostatic deflector at the energy of 3,6 GeV. The range of this beam is of 174 mm in water and is enough to threat all the tumors of the head and neck district. Despite the machine is able to accelerate also the ionised hydrogen molecule up to 300 AMeV, an extraction by stripping allow us to deliver a proton beam with energy of 250 MeV. The range in water of proton beam with this energy being 370 mm. The main parameters of the cyclotron and the main features of the beam dynamics will be presented.
