Small-cell lung cancer is an infrequent (10%) form of lung cancer which may rarely become apparent with signs of distant metastases. A case is presented where a cholestatic syndrome was the presenting feature of a small-cell lung cancer which was not suspected clinically. The misleading clinical picture, the inaccurate results of ultrasound, ERCP and chest x-ray did not allow the correct diagnosis to be made until post mortem examination. Even according to the published experience, which is reviewed here, this presentation and clinical course appear exceedingly rare.

Abstract

Small-cell lung cancer is an infrequent (10%) form of lung cancer which may rarely become apparent with signs of distant metastases. A case is presented where a cholestatic syndrome was the presenting feature of a small-cell lung cancer which was not suspected clinically. The misleading clinical picture, the inaccurate results of ultrasound, ERCP and chest x-ray did not allow the correct diagnosis to be made until post mortem examination. Even according to the published experience, which is reviewed here, this presentation and clinical course appear exceedingly rare.
