Purpose: We identified key clinicopathologic features of brain metastasis (BM) patients who are long-term survivors (LTS). Methods: We screened a prospective database of 1892 patients (treated 2006-2017), identified 92 (5%) who lived > 3 years following BM diagnosis, and performed per patient analyses. Results: Median age at diagnosis of BM was 57 years (range 19-77), 77% were women. The most common tumors were lung (50%), breast (26%), thyroid (7%) and skin (5%). 42% had tumors with drug-targetable oncoproteins (e.g. EGFR mutant) and 15% expressed hormonal receptors. ECOG was <2 in 70%. 47% had stage IV disease at diagnosis (75% with brain as the first site). 55% had controlled extracranial disease at the time of BM diagnosis. Median BM diameter was 1.5 cm (range 0.2-7) and 62% had a single lesion. Treatment was with surgery, radiosurgery, whole brain radiation (WBRT), or systemic therapy alone in 38%, 62%, 52%, and 4%, respectively. 53% received targeted- or immuno-therapy. Median follow up was 63 months (range 36-113). 61% failed intracranially at a median 24 months (range 1-99). 5 and 10- year survival (from BM diagnosis) was 82%, and 34%, respectively. Neither upfront WBRT nor other variables tested correlated with improved survival. In patients who died, an MRI was available within 3 months from death in 57%; of those 55% had no active intracranial disease, suggesting that the majority of deaths were non-neurologic. Conclusion: In general, LTS of BM had a limited number of BM, inactive extracranial disease, and drug targetable mutations.
