Objective: Small-Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) constitutes about 15% of all lung cancers. It tends to frequently metastasize to the brain. Prophylactic Cranial Irradiation (PCI) is performed, when the penetration of chemotherapeutic agents to brain is insufficient. The aim of this study was to report our single-center experience with PCI in SCLC cases.
