Publication Type Case Report

A case of bronchogenic carcinoma manifesting Pancoast's syndrome is presented. A 48-year-old female patient suffered from pain in the neck, axilla, anterior lower ribs and subscapular regions, with thoracic paraspinal muscle spasm, and paresthesia in the right upper extremity. An anteroposterior lower cervical radiograph demonstrated a homogenous mass lesion in the apex of the right lung. The patient was referred for medical diagnosis and treatment. A significant reduction in the pain experienced by the patient was achieved with spinal manipulative therapy while the patient was undergoing medical therapy for the malignancy.
