ABSTRACT
Recurrence in the contralateral lung of patients who have undergone pneumonectomy for lung cancer is often not surgically treatable. Percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of tumours is an emerging minimally invasive technique which has recently been used in the treatment of lung cancer. The case history is presented of a patient who had previously undergone pneumonectomy in whom recurrence of lung cancer was treated by RFA. The procedure was performed under CT guidance and was uneventful. At follow up 9 months later the tumour appeared to have ablated. To our knowledge, no similar case has previously been reported in the literature.
