Abstract

A 68-year-old man with recurrent lung cancer was treated with chemotherapy of weekly gemcitabine and vinorelbine on an outpatient basis. After 2 cycles of the regimen, shadows in the lung completely disappeared. During this treatment, the patient's condition was good. This regimen seems to be effective in maintaining QOL and may be suitable for outpatients.
