Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a unique tumor that has a distinct clinical behavior and dismal prognosis. If untreated, it can become aggressively malignant, and life expectancy could be limited to weeks. Spontaneous regression of lung cancer has rarely been reported, and among them SCLC is even rarer. The underlying mechanisms of spontaneous regression are poorly understood. Here, we report a case of complete spontaneous SCLC remission in an elderly patient.
