A Case Report: Successful Treatment of Meningeal Metastasis with Concurrent Whole Brain Radiotherapy and Erlotinib in a Patient with Non-small Cell Lung Cancer



We report a case of successful treatment with erlotinib of a patient with non-small cell lung cancer (stage IV) and meningeal metastasis. Combined treatment with whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) and erlotinib mitigated neurologic symptoms of the patient. Magnetic resonance imaging showed reduction of the brain metastasis. Partial remission was observed by chest computed tomography (CT) scan after six months of erlotinib therapy.
