A 46-year-old man, acutely ill with fever, anemia, and hepatomegaly, was found to have an epidermoid carcinoma by percutaneous needle biopsy of a left apical lung mass. Following resection of the necrotic tumor, fever, anemia, and hepatomegaly disappeared. The patient is alive with no evidence of cancer 30 months later.
