Primary bronchogenic squamous cell carcinoma in children: report of a case and review of the literature

Med Pediatr Oncol. 1995 Jan;24(1):50-2. doi: 10.1002/mpo.2950240111.


The authors report a case of primary bronchogenic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) revealed by recurrent pneumonia in an 11-year-old boy. Four years after complete surgical resection followed by external radiotherapy, the patient is currently relapse- and metastasis-free. To our knowledge, this is only the sixth pediatric case of primary bronchogenic SCC reported to date.
