Résumé : Thirty Pancoast syndromes related to pulmonary sulcus tumours are reviewed. Pain is poorly relieved by radiotherapy or palliative surgery. The mean survival rate is 10 months. We propose preoperative radiotherapy (3,500 rads) of localized tumours followed by extensive surgical resection after 4 weeks. Data from the literature and two initial cases are reported.
