Abstract

Major pulmonary resections are rarely performed in non-small cell lung cancer patients on hemodialysis. To date only two cases of pneumonectomy performed in such patients are reported in the literature. Moreover, chemotherapy, as a treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer, is not routinely administered to patients with end-stage renal disease requiring hemodialysis. We present the case of a stage III3 non-small cell lung cancer patient on hemodialysis who successfully underwent neciadjuvant chemotherapy followed by pneumonectomy. To our knowledge, this is the first case of non-small cell lung cancer patient on hemodialysis reported in the literature who successfully underwent this type of combined therapy.
