Long term survivors with small cell carcinoma of the lung

Abstract

A retrospective study was done of all patients who survived 2 years or more with small cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lung. The study period was 1970 to 1978 and patients with either local or metastatic disease were included. Pathology review documented 17 patients with an unequivocal diagnosis of SCC surviving 2 years or more. The important conclusions of this study are: (1) Local treatment (either surgery or radiation therapy) was an important part of therapy for long term survival; (2) Local tumor control in the lung was superior in those patients treated with surgery or high dose lung irradiation (>4800 rad) compared to patients treated with low dose lung irradiation (
