Abstract Text ALK and ROS1 are prognostic and predictive tumor markers in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), which are more often found in lung adenocarcinomas as with other oncogenes such as EGFR, KRAS, or C-MET. Their positivity is 2.6% and 1.3%, respectively, and patients who have mutations in both genes are extremely rare. Here, we report a 61-year-old male diagnosed with acinar adenocarcinoma, who was shown to have both ALK and ROS1 rearrangements but was EGFR- and C-MET mutation-negative. He was treated surgically and received targeted therapy. Our review of the literature revealed that few such cases of concurrent ALK and ROS1 rearrangements have been reported. This information furthers our understanding of the molecular biology underlying NSCLC which will aid the selection of optimal treatment for patients with more than one driver mutation.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
