      Metastatic non-small cell lung cáncer (NSCLC) is associated with a poor prognosis, and palliative chemotherapy is the mainstay of treatment. However, long-time survival has been observed in oligometastatic patients treated with locally ablative therapies to all sites of tumoral disease. Oligometastatic NSCLC with unresectable primary tumor at diagnosis represents a therapeutic challenge, and nowadays there is limited evidence about the benefit of the treatment with radical intention of both primary tumor and metastases.

      Retrospective study of patients with oligometastatic (3 or less lesions, in a unique location) and unresectable NSCLC treated with radical chemo-radiotherapy at primary tumor and with surgery or stereotactic radiation therapy to the metastases. We have done a systematic review of clinical histories from NSCLC advanced patients diagnosed between October 2011 and March 2015. The aim of our study is to analyze the safety and efficacy of this treatment strategy in terms of response rate, progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).

      Twenty-three patients met inclusion criteria. Median age 57 year, eighteen male (78,3%) and ECOG (0-1) 95,7%. Histology: 15 adenocarcinoma (65,2%), 5 squamous carcinoma (5%), and 3 (13%) others. All patients had unresectable mediastinal lymph nodes infiltration. Location of metastases included the brain (n=12, 52.2%), lung metastases (n=6, 26,1%), bone metastases (n= 3, 13%), adrenal (n=1, 4,3%) and lymph node (n=1, 4,3%). Chemotherapy: 9 CDDP-Pemetrexed (39,1%), 9 CDDP-Vinorelbina (39,1%), 3 Carboplatin-paclitaxel, 1 CDDP-Gemcitabina (4.3%), 1 CDDP-Docetaxel (4.3%). Ten patients (43.5%) received sequential thoracic radiotherapy and 12 (52.2%) concomitant. Metastases treatment: 12 stererotactic radiation (52.2%), 7 external radiotherapy (30, 4%), 3 surgery (13%), 1 radiofrequency (4.3%). Toxicity: four patients (17,39%) developed G3 toxicity (2 hematological, 1 pneumonitis, 1 esophagitis). Median follow up was 15 months, median OS 18 m, median PFS 11 months. The 1-year OS were 73.9%, 2-year OS 21,7% and 3-year OS 8.7%.

      Radical treatment of oligometastatic and unresectable NSCLC patients is a safe therapeutic strategy. Despite the limited data and the small numbers of our study, it could be contemplated as an effective therapeutic alternative for selected patients.
