A 62 years man was accidentally detected multiply GGN nodules and didn’t do any following up examination. After suffering from a serious low back pain, he was diagnosed as right lung adenocarcinoma with metastases of hilar and mediastina lymph nodes, bilateral lungs, liver and multiple bones, IV stage, EGFR/ALK(-), STK11(+), MDM4(+). Because of intolerant to chemotherapy and other ways, he eventually died of respiratory failure in four months after confirmed diagnosis with total process was 39 months. Whether the rapid growth of mGGN is associated with hyper-progress mutations in KRAS combined with STK11 and MDM4 remains to be further studied urgently. According to the management guideline of Ground Glass Nodule (GGN), regularly repeated CT scan is extremely important to achieve early detection, diagnosis and treatment for lung cancer.
