Abstract
Pediatric lung cancer is uncommon, and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is exceptionally rare. A 14-year-old previously healthy girl was diagnosed with limited-stage SCLC, which was considered inoperable. She responded well to chemotherapy with carboplatin and etoposide, and surgical resection was performed after 2 cycles. High-dose thoracic radiotherapy in combination with etoposide and carboplatin was given as postoperative treatment. The patient died of relapsing disease 21 months after initial diagnosis. Only 1 single case report on SCLC has been published earlier. Additional reports on pediatric SCLC are needed to evaluate appropriate treatment.
