Abstract :

 Background: Morbidity and mortality due to primary onchogenic carcinoma in female is rising in developed countries. Developing countries like India is no longer ahead from this race. Early detection by radiological imaging may help in both tumor staging and treatment planning. Aim: To evaluate the Radiological patterns of histopathologically proven Primary Bronchogenic carcinoma(ca) in south Indian females with chest x-ray and Computerized Tomography (CT) of Chest. Methods and Material: Our study is an open prospective study. Only patients with a confirmed pathological cell type of Bronchogenic ca included in this study.We study the Radiological pattern of histopathologically proven primary onchogenic carcinoma in female patients who attended Thoracic Medicine Department. 31 female patients were included in this study over a period of 15 months. This study was approved by the local ethics committee.Chest x-ray and CT chest with upper abdomen were done to characterize the lesions further to help to stage the disease. Statistical analysis used: Results: Total number of patients diagnosed to have Primary onchogenic carcinoma during the period of study was 163. Of these 132 males and 31 females were diagnosed as Primary onchogenic carcinoma. Hence the F: M ratio was 1:4.3 which contributes 19 % of the total. Out of 31 cases included in this study, 23 patients were Adeno Carcinoma, 6 patients were Squamous cell Carcinoma, 1 patient each for Small cell Carcinoma and Anaplastic Carcinoma. In this study the age range was from 28 to 68 years with a mean age of 49.35 years. Maximum number of patients were presented between 41 to 50 years of age. No patient in this study was an active smoker. Conclusions: For diagnosis , determination of treatment and for staging Bronchogenic ca radiological patterns have a particular importance. Presence of each country’s statistical information reflecting its own profile is also important.
