Abstract

Despite the fact that non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is very common in the older population, these patients are frequently underrepresented in clinical and surgical trials and thus it is difficult to reach evidence-based recommendations for this special population. We present a case of a surgical treatment of asymptomatic lung cancer in a very elderly patient. The patient had no recurrence for 4 years after a complete resection.
