Abstract

Among 7266 patients admitted to Forlanini Institute in the years from 1960 to 1971, 250 were affected by primary lung cancer histologically demonstrated. 58.4% of all cases were epidermoid carcinomas, 19.2% were small-cell undifferentiated, 14% large-cell type and 8.4% adenocarcinomas. The survival at the fifth year from the diagnosis was higher in epidermoid type and operated patients. No correlation between survival and patients age. It seems that the time between the first symptom and the histological diagnosis doesn't affect the survival, while first and second stage show the best prognosis.
