Photodynamic therapy has been used in the management of early lung cancer since the 1980s. It appears to be effective as a curative therapy for superficial squamous cell carcinomas and as palliative therapy in obstructive cancers of the tracheobronchial tree. New photosensitizers that have a deeper penetration and less photosensitivity are needed.
