  • PURPOSE The aim of this prospective study was to assess the diagnostic value of the tumour markers carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), cytokeratin 19 fragment marker (CYFRA 21-1) and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) in the differentiation of malignant (MSPLs) from benign solitary pulmonary lesions (BSPLs). METHODS Solitary pulmonary lesions (SPLs) were diagnosed using plain radiography and spiral computed tomography (SCT) and then completely removed by surgery in 104 consecutive patients (MSPLs; n… CONTINUE READING
