Prevalence of brain metastases immediately before prophylactic cranial irradiation in limited disease small cell lung cancer patients with complete remission to chemoradiotherapy: a single institution experience



Prevalence of brain metastases immediately before prophylactic cranial irradiation in limited disease small cell lung cancer patients with complete remission to chemoradiotherapy: a single institution experience



Journal of Thoracic Oncology 3(6): 652-655



This single-center study investigated the prevalence of brain metastases immediately before prophylactic cranial irradiation in 40 consecutive limited disease small cell lung cancer complete responders to chemoradiotherapy and revealed that 13/40 (32.5%; 95% confidence interval: 18-47%) patients suffer relapse with brain metastases and show a significantly worse prognosis than those without detected brain metastases.
