Abstract

Undifferentiated small cell carcinoma is a rare disease and, since the first case was reported by McKeown [1] in 1952, no more than 100 cases have been reported [2]. The prognosis is usually extremely poor, and the best treatment has not yet been established, though several cases that obtained fair prognosis by the multidisciplinary treatment were seen.
