We herein report 10 cases of patients with lung cancer who were diagnosed with thoracic tuberculosis. Aim: To study the combination, clinical diagnosis and treatment in case of coexistence of lung cancer and tuberculosis. Results: A total of 10 patients diagnosed with lung cancer and tuberculosis. Main patients were men (09). Most of our patients were diagnosed with advanced lung cancer in 80% (stage IIIB-stage IV).Carcinoma occurred in the upper lung zone in 60%. Adenocarcinoma was the most common histological type (80%).The diagnosis of active tuberculosis was made by histopathologic study of the lymph nodes in 8 patients and was made by direct examination of sputum in two patients. The Tuberculosis treatment was initiated in all patients. The chemotherapy was prescribed for 8 patients and was initiated with an average delay of 45 days after the start of anti- tuberculosisdrugs. samat sorem Conclusion: In the management of lung cancer, we should consider the possibility of coexistence active pulmonary tuberculosis especially in endemic tuberculosis countries.
