Abstract

We report the case of a 53-year-old woman with brain metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). Diagnosis was made during brain surgery. Brain metastases were treated both with surgery and radiotherapy. The chemotherapy schedule was cisplatin 75 mg/m2 and docetaxel 75 mg/m2 1q21 for up to six cycles. Toxicities encountered were easily manageable. Subsequent thoracic radiotherapy improved tumor response and quality of life.
