ABSTRACT

BRONCHOGENIC carcinoma has assumed a position of paramount medical importance because of its rapid increase in incidence.

Confusion in proper recognition of carcinoma of the bronchus may be due to the coexistence of a benign pulmonary disease or simulation of a benign pulmonary lesion by the malignant process.
