Abstract

The discovery of driver mutations in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has led to the advent of targeted therapy and changed the clinical landscape. ROS1 is a rare driver mutation found in 1%-2% of patients diagnosed with NSCLC. This case highlights a young woman of Asian descent with no history of smoking diagnosed with NSCLC and ROS1 rearrangement and discusses the implications for oncology nurses in clinical practice.
