This study confirmed that the overall prognosis of BALC is not significantly different from that of the other non-small cell lung cancers. We found that the lungs are the predominant site of recurrence in BALC, especially in the pneumonic types. The complete surgical resection of localized BALC offers the best chances of long-term survival.
