Tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) have been proved to be effective in the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) sensitive mutation, which is superior to chemotherapy. However, there are still some patients with sensitive mutations have primary drug resistance. It may be related to the coexistence of susceptible and resistant mutations of EGFR gene, downstream mutations of EGFR pathway, MET amplification and BIM deletion polymorphism. We present 2 cases of primary drug resistance and analyze the reasons.
