Abstract

Abstract. Lung cancer is a rapidly progressing disease with a poor prognosis. Lung squamous cell cancer (LSCC) accounts for 20‑30% of lung cancer cases. Conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy are the common options for LSCC. Nevertheless, the outcomes of these treatments are still unsatisfactory. The present report describes a rare case of LSCC with pericardial, cervical lymph node and extensive mediastinal lymph node metastases, who still survives today, in March 2022, more than 10 years after therapy and, therefore, this case study indicates a possible treatment regimen for patients with a similar condition. In conclusion, gemcitabine and cisplatin followed by radiotherapy were an effective treatment against pericardial and lymph node metastases from LSCC.
