Abstract

We describe here a case of Pancoast's syndrome due to metastatic carcinoma from the stomach. Although obtaining a tissue diagnosis is often difficult with apical lesions, transbronchial or percutaneous needle biopsy is the procedure of choice since a certain number of these cases are potentially curable.
