AbstractTen patients treated for 'limited' stage small cell lung cancer presented during follow-up with epigastric or back pain together with nausea and/or vomiting. Upper abdominal lymphadenopathy was shown to be the first symptomatic site of relapse. A single fraction of radiotherapy provided a convenient, effective form of palliation. Ultrasound scanning proved an accurate, readily available technique for the diagnosis of this form of intra-abdominal disease.
