  1. Bronchogenic cancer in patients under 40 years old : the experience of a Latin American Country.

    Article - En anglais

    Lung cancer in young patients is increasing in frequency, as documented by data from the United States, Canada, japan; and European countries.

    However, to date and to our knowledge, there have not been any reports from Latin America on this topic.

    The published reports show that lung cancer in young patients is associated with smoking habit and family history of lung cancer.

    Its clinical course seems to be more aggressive than in older patients and the histologic type is less often squamous type.

    We describe 48 patients, used 40 years or younger, who were diagnosed as having lung cancer in the Instituto Nacional de Cancerologia from 1980 to 1990.
