RODRIGUEZ CASCARET, Argenis; MARTIN RODRIGUEZ, Andrés  and  HERNANDEZ CASTELLANOS, Kirenia. Clinical, tomographic and pathological consistency in lung cancer. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.5, pp.650-656. ISSN 1029-3019.

An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out in 55 patients admitted to the Internal Medicine Service of "Conrado Benítez García" University Oncology Hospital in Santiago de Cuba with clinical diagnosis of lung cancer, from December 2008 to November 2009, to characterize them according to variables of interest for research. Among the main results were predominance of male sex, age group between 60-69 years, smoking habit, and chronic bronchitis as past medical history, and acute bronchopneumonia as clinical form, lung infiltrative peripheral image as tomographic finding and adenocarcinoma in stages IIIa and IIIb as tissue confirmation, among others. There was an excellent consistency among clinical, imagenological and pathological findings.

Keywords : lung cancer; clinical consistency; tomographic consistency; pathological consistency; oncology hospital.
