Ten patients with a Pancoast tumour, seven with pulmonary carcinoma, three with a soft tissue tumour, were treated surgically with or without preoperative chemotherapy or external radiotherapy, and with postoperative external radiotherapy mostly in combination with brachytherapy using a flexible intraoperative template. The results were highly variable, e.g. one patient died after three months, another was still alive without tumour after 36 months. Optimal treatment requires cooperation of experienced surgeons, radiotherapists and medical oncologists.
