A 52-year-old female nonsmoker with localized squamous cell carcinoma (T3N1M0) of lung underwent lobectomy with adjuvant chemotherapy. Two years later, the patient had her first locoregional recurrence with adenosquamous cell carcinoma, and pneumonectomy with adjuvant chemotherapy rendered her disease free. Subsequent isolated locoregional recurrence with squamous cell carcinoma 18 months later was treated with chemoradiotherapy and had a complete response. Patient yet again had locoregional recurrence after 4 years and had progressive disease despite subsequent multiple line of treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy, stereotactic body radiation therapy, and nivolumab. This case is unique in presentation due to prolonged survival with multiple line of treatment of recurrent locoregional tumor without distant metastasis and alteration in the histology of tumor during illness.
