A patient with pulmonary nodules 1 year after curative intent resection of primary lung adenocarcinoma

Case Description
A 45 year-old, nonsmoking, white female diagnosed with stage IIB primary NSCLC underwent right lower lobectomy. The tumor was adenocarcinoma with no visceral pleural extension. Surgical lymphadenectomy revealed no peribronchial, hilar or mediastinal lymph node involvement. The tumor was staged T3N0M0. Adjuvant chemotherapy was well tolerated except for fatigue, nausea, constipation and transient peripheral neuropathy. A surveillance PET-CT scan obtained after completion of adjuvant chemotherapy showed no residual tumor.
