Abstract

Miliary lung metastases are a rare form of metastasis of non‑small‑cell lung carcinoma. Miliary lung metastases commonly develop in lung adenocarcinoma with epidermal growth factor receptor mutation. In the present study, we present a case of miliary lung metastases from lung adenocarcinoma with ROS1 rearrangement. The patient, who had a history of surgery for stage IIIA lung adenocarcinoma, presented to our hospital with cough, dyspnea, and severe hypoxia. Chest computed tomography showed numerous tiny, randomly distributed nodules throughout both lungs. No metastases were observed in other organs. Molecular profiling of the surgical specimens was positive for ROS1 rearrangement. The results suggest that chest physicians should be aware that miliary lung metastases can develop in patients with lung adenocarcinoma with ROS1 rearrangement.
