INTRODUCTION: Small cell lung cancer (oat.cell carcinoma) comes up usually with respiratory symptoms and/or radiological findings. CLINICAL CASE: This clinical case corresponds to a patient with a metastatic skull mass and medullary compression syndrome as a debut of an oat cell lung cancer. CONCLUSIONS: A very marked suspicion is necessary for the clinical early diagnosis of small cell lung cancer with limited disease. Nevertheless, cases as the one reported here manifest its aggressiveness, with a high rate of dissemination at diagnosis and a high morbimortality.

Keywords : Small cell lung cancer; Skull metastases; Medullary compression; Ttf-1.
