Abstract

A 61-year-old man, who had undergone right upper lobectomy for lung cancer about nineteen months earlier, was examined at our hospital for hemoptysis. A bronchial stump recurrence was observed by chest CT and bronchoscopy. The patient underwent chemoradiotherapy using cisplatin (CDDP) and vinorelbine (VNB). Irradiation was started (total 60 Gy/30 fr/6 weeks) about four weeks before the onset of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy consisted of 2 cycles of CDDP 80 mg/m2 on day 1 and VNB 15 mg/m2 on day 1, 8. The dose of VNB was increased to 25 mg/m2 during cycle 2 because cycle 2 was without radiotherapy. After the chemoradiotherapy, the recurrent tumor disappeared on a CT scan and bronchoscopy. Chemoradiotherapy using CDDP plus VNB regimen is considered effective, without serious side effects for advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.
