Mujer de 51 años con un carcinoma de glándulas sudoríparas (CGS) en la axila derecha tratado mediante cirugía radical y radioterapia, que 6 años después presentó metástasis pulmonares bilaterales múltiples. Se resecaron nueve nódulos en ambos pulmones a través de una toracotomía anterolateral bilateral transesternal (clamshell). La paciente recibió seis ciclos de quimioterapia adyuvante postoperatoria con cisplatino y 5-fluorouracilo. En la actualidad, a los 3 años de seguimiento, no ha habido recidivas intratorácicas, y la paciente se encuentra asintomática y con buena calidad de vida

A 51-year-old woman with carcinoma of the right axillary sweat glands was treated by radical surgery and radiotherapy. Six years later she developed multiple bilateral lung metastases. Nine nodes were resected from both lungs using a clamshell approach (bilateral transsternal, anterolateral thoracotomy). After surgery, the patient received 6 cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy with cisplatin and 5-fluoruracil. Three years after treatment, no intrathoracic recurrences had occurred and the patient was asymptomatic, with good quality of life
