Two patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) developed "web-like" mucosa that obstructed bronchi after concurrent chemoradiotherapy. It seemed that the orifice of the bronchi had disappeared. Since the patients were free of local recurrence and the histologic findings of "web-like" mucosa were negative for malignancy, we believe that "web-like obstruction" was additional sign of regional complete remission of SCLC after concurrent chemoradiotherapy.
