TI  - Stereotactic Radiosurgery Alone for One to Two Brain Metastases from Cancer of
      Unknown Primary.
PG  - 565-567
AB  - BACKGROUND/AIM: The use of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) alone has become
      popular for treating patients with a limited number of brain metastases. In very 
      few patients, the primary tumor leading to cerebral spread is unknown. This study
      investigated the role of SRS for this rare situation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eight
      patients with 1-2 brain metastases from cancer of unknown primary (CUP) received 
      SRS alone (median dose 20 Gy). Five clinical factors were evaluated for
      association with local control of the irradiated lesions, freedom from new
      cerebral lesions and survival. RESULTS: Six-month and 12-month survival rates
      were 63% and 63%, respectively. Improved survival was associated with male gender
      and only one cerebral lesion. Local control rates at 6 and 12 months were 100%.
      Six-month rate of freedom from new cerebral lesions was 86%. CONCLUSION: SRS
      appeared effective and resulted in promising local control and survival rates in 
      patients with 1-2 brain metastases from CUP.
