      • Slides


      Lung cancer diagnosed solely with intrathoracic metastases are classified as M1a, but intrathoracic metastases can be further divided into different patterns. The objective of our study was to analyze the survival difference between different metastatic patterns of intrathoracic metastases in lung adenocarcinoma patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations.

      EGFR-mutant patients diagnosed only with intrathoracic metastasis between March 2011 and October 2016 were collected. Prognosis was analyzed according to metastatic patterns based on univariate and multivariate analysis.

      A total of 137 patients (60 patients who only had pleural metastasis [Group A], 44 patients who only had contralateral lung metastasis [Group B] and other 33 patients had both pleural and contralateral lung metastasis with or without pericardial effusion [Group C]) were included in the study. The median OS (overall survival) times were 38.1(95%confidence interval [CI]: 27.8-48.4), 35.7(95%CI: 23.4-48.0), and 29.7(95%CI: 22.8-36.6) months for Group A, Group B, and Group C, respectively (p = 0.037). Multivariate analysis demonstrated that Group A and Group B had longer OS than Group C (hazard ratio [HR]=0.524, 95%CI: 0.307-0.894, p = 0.018; HR = 0.473, 95%CI: 0.241-0.931, p = 0.030, respectively) among lung adenocarcinoma patients with EGFR mutation. With regard to patients with pleural or contralateral metastasis only, OS benefit (p = 0.579) was not significant between the two groups. Subgroup analysis demonstrated that the OS benefit of Group A was significant in patients with N0-1 disease and 21L858R mutant but not in EGFR exon 19 deletion, N2-3 stage and T3-4 stage disease patients.

      The prognosis of EGFR-mutant lung adenocarcinoma patients diagnosed only with intrathoracic metastasis is different, indicating that M1a may should be refined in the future.
