Case Report on an Interesting Case of Pancoast Tumor

Dr. Kakoli Baishya

Abstract: Pancoast syndrome was initially described as superior sulcus tumor. It refers to a primary lung cancer that arises in the lung apex and is associated with invasion of surrounding structures. Pancoast syndrome is classically seen in only about one third of the patients. They account for about 3 - 5% of all bronchogenic carcinomas. Apical lung tumors are usually non - small cell lung cancers. Treatment usually depends upon the extent of the tumor. Despite the advances, prognosis is usually poor.
