In patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and MPE, the evidence of malignant cells in the pleura is critical as their presence directly means that the patient presents with metastatic disease, and therefore he will be treated accordingly despite the fact that there is no evidence of other metastatic sites (5)},
