Abstract: We experienced a 62-year-old man with human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) producing carcinoma of the lung. The patient was admitted with gynecomastia and breast pain accompanying a high urinary HCG level. He underwent left upper lobectomy for primary lesion, and then segmental lung resection for a contralateral pulmonary metastasis 3 months later. Histological examination revealed a large cell carcinoma positive for HCG on immunohistochemical staining. Postoperative chemotheraphy with CDDP and VDS was not successful. He is still alive with residural 8 lesions at months after the initial operation.
