Abstract
We treated synchronous double primary lung cancers, where one site resulted from CIS disease, with lobectomy and argon plasma coagulation (APC) in a patient who couldn't tolerate pneumonectomy, which resulted in a reduction of the extent of surgery. APC could be a reasonable alternative for CIS disease of lung in inoperable patients.
Key Words: Synchronous Roentgenographically Occult Lung Carcinoma (ROLC), Carcinoma in situ, Argon Plasma Coagulation (APC)
