BRAF mutations occur in about 3% of all lung adenocarcinomas and V600E missense mutation characterizes about half of BRAFmutated lung adenocarcinomas and is significantly associated with micropapillary pattern and shorter disease-free and overall survival rates. In this report, we report a challenging case of a patient with a metastatic micropapillary adenocarcinoma of the lung harbouring V600E BRAF mutation who experienced a surprising protracted clinical response to metronomic vinorelbine. The possible association between the V600E BRAF mutation pathway and the effective use of vinca alkaloid is discussed.
