Thyroid metastasis from small cell lung carcinoma: a case report and review of the literature.
Small cell lung carcinoma frequently metastasizes to lymph nodes, liver, adrenal glands, bone, brain and pleura. Metastasis of small cell lung cancer to the thyroid gland is extremely rare.

Gastric metastasis from small cell lung cancer: a case report.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) represents a group of highly malignant tumors that give rise to early and widespread metastases at the time of diagnosis. The preferential metastatic sites are the brain, liver, adrenal glands, bone, and bone marrow. How

Isolated Splenic Metastasis from Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.
Metastases to the spleen are rare but have been reported for different tumor entities, including breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, ovarian cancer, and melanoma. As an isolated event, splenic metastasis from non-small-cell lung cancer (NS

Eyelash trichomegaly following treatment with erlotinib in a non-small cell lung cancer patient: A case report and literature review.
Inhibitors of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), including tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), present significant clinical benefits in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), particularly in patients with an EGFR mutation. However,

Long-term survival in small cell lung cancer: a case report and review of the literature.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) represents approximately 13% of all newly diagnosed lung cancers. SCLC is a very aggressive disease characterized by early locoregional and distant metastases. The median survival is 14-16 months for patients with limite

Scalp metastasis as the first sign of small-cell lung cancer: management and literature review.
Cutaneous metastasis from primary visceral malignancy is a relatively uncommon clinical entity, with a reported incidence ranging from 0.22% to 10% among various series. However, the presence of cutaneous metastasis as the first sign of a clinically

Ectopic Cushing syndrome in small cell lung cancer: A case report and literature review.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a neuroendocrine tumor with the potential to secrete various peptides or hormones that can lead to paraneoplastic syndromes, such as Ectopic Cushing syndrome (ECS). Because of the aggressive nature of the syndrome and

Iris metastasis as the first sign of small cell lung cancer: A case report.
The current study documents an unusual case of iris metastasis as the first sign of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and reviews the relevant literature to increase understanding and awareness of this rare condition. A 59-year-old male chronic smoker pr

Cutaneous metastasis as an initial presentation of lung adenocarcinoma with KRAS mutation: a case report and literature review.
Cutaneous metastasis as an initial presentation occurs in 0.8% of patients with internal malignancies, and is poorly understood in its molecular pathogenesis. We reported a case in which a 61-year-old male patient initially presented with rapidly gro
