Abstract

Pancoast (superior sulcus tumors) comprise a subset of non-small-cell lung cancers that have a unique clinical presentation by virtue of the locoregional pattern of disease progression. We herein report a brief report on our group's pilot experience in managing these challenging lung neoplasms with an aggressive concomitant modality approach. These results and those of the recent Southwest Oncology-lead Intergroup prospective phase 2 trial (SWOG-9416/INT-0160) support the use of concomitant chemoradiation followed by an attempt at surgical resection.
