Abstract

Aim: To investigate the radiological features on computed tomography (CT) of brain metastasis (BM) from epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-mutated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Patients and Methods: Thirty-four patients with NSCLC with BMs who underwent surgical resection of the BMs at the Department of Neurosurgery, Kyushu University from 2005 to 2016 were enrolled in the study. The EGFR statuses of the 34 BMs were investigated. Radiological features, including the number, size, and location of the tumor, were delineated by CT. Results: Patients with EGFR-mutated BMs had significantly higher frequencies of multiple metastases than those with the non-EGFR-mutated type (p=0.042). BMs harboring mutations in EGFR were more frequently observed in the central area of the brain compared to those without mutations in EGFR (p=0.037). Conclusion: Careful follow-up of patients with EGFR-mutated NSCLC may be necessary given the high frequencies of multiple BMs and their location in the central area of the brain.
