Pneumon 2001;14(2):147-150
We present a case of a female patient who had undergone a complete hysterectomy for endometrial cancer. Three years after the operation she presented with a chronic paroxysmal cough and diagnostic investigation revealed a single metastatic lesion of the spleen. A splenectomy was performed and surprisingly the cough was completely abolished. Pathophysiology of the cough reflex is reviewed and medical literature search on relevant cases with splenic metastasis is presented. Pneumon 2001, 14(2): 147-150
