摘要

Purpose: Brain metastases (BM), a common occurrence in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), usually lead to a poor prognosis. Recently, the selection of treatment modalities for BM has modestly improved patient survival and quality of life. Treatment choice is largely based on the number of BM, the presence of BM-related symptoms, and performance status. Therefore, early BM detection is crucial. In this study, we aimed to elucidate the factors associated with BM and identify subgroups of patients at higher risk for BM. Methods and patients: The medical records of 596 consecutive patients with stage I-IV NSCLC were reviewed between January 2006 and November 2011. A multivariate logistic regression (MLR) model was used to identify factors associated with BM. Results: Among 482 eligible stage IIIB/IV NSCLC patients, 173 (36%) experienced BM during their disease course. On MLR analysis, female gender, age
