Abstract

Primary bronchogenic carcinoma of the lung is extremely rare in children, particularly the squamous cell type. Only 6 cases have been reported in the literature. We are reporting a case of metastatic squamous cell carcinoma in a 13-year-old boy who presented with left shoulder pain secondary to bone metastasis. Given the lack of specific symptoms associated with such malignancies, many children are at risk of delayed diagnosis and, as a result, associated metastases. Diagnostic evaluation hinges on biopsy of suspected lesion and histopathologic evaluation. Treatment regimens are rather ill defined, though the mainstay is surgical resection of the lesion along with chemotherapy and palliative radiotherapy for bone metastasis.
