Abstract

Twenty-three patients with bronchogenic carcinoma and a brain metastasis had their primary and secondary tumors treated surgically. The 10 men and 13 women had an average age of 52 years. Fifteen patients presented with a lesion of the lung and eight patients presented initially with neurological findings of an intracranial mass lesion. The most common histological type of tumor was adenocarcinoma (48%), followed by squamous cell carcinoma, undifferentiated small cell carcinoma, and bronchoalveolar carcinoma. Twelve patients (52%) had a poor result and died during the first 6 months. Surgery appeared to improve short-term survival in six patients (26%). Five patients (22%) had a good result and lived longer than 2 years without significant neurological deficit. Three patients (13%) are alive 10 or more years following surgery.
