Brain metastasis is observed among 20-40 % patients, having malignant tumors. The lung cancer is more often source of metastasis. Clinical presentations of metastatic affection are often developing for some weeks, and only in 25 % of cases they are of sudden nature. The length of patient’s life without treatment is one month. After whole-body irradiation of brain the survival of patients is increasing for 4-6 month. Surgical method of treatment is applied at single metastasis in brain at middle size of tumor of 3.43 cm. CyberKnife shows special benefits in the plan of accurate target dose delivery and control over tumors. Its implementation provides the length of life for about 56 weeks. The authors describe the possibilities of implementation of CyberKnife at treatment of multiple, coherence of the appearing metastasis in brain at small cell carcinoma of lung of men 50 year old. The general survivability was 19 months.
