Resumo

As neoplasias de localização primária
desconhecida constituem um grupo heterogéneo de
tumores malignos que têm como denominador
comum as suas características biológicas.
Apresentam uma incidência de 2 a 3% e são mais
frequentes no homem com idade superior a 60 anos.
Em termos globais têm mau prognóstico, mas há
alguns subgrupos potencialmente curáveis que
devem ser identificados precocemente, de forma a
instituir uma terapêutica adequada. Os autores fazem
uma revisão do tema com objectivo de apresentar
uma metodologia diagnóstica e terapêutica que
permita uma abordagem prática deste grupo de neoplasias.
