Neoplasie combinate del polmone: Descrizione di un caso di adenocarcinoma combinato con carcinoide tipico

Translated title of the contribution: Combined tumors of the lung: Report of an adenocarcinoma combined with a typical carcinoid

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective To report about a lung tumor that was a combination of typical carcinoid and adenocarcinoma. Results and conclusions The patient, a 71-year-old male, presented with a 2.5-cm pulmonary nodule that, microscopically, was a combination of an adenocarcinoma (tubular with clear cell features and bronchioloalveolar) and a typical carcinoid. Immitnohistochemically, both components were positive for cytokeratin, but only the carcinoid component was positive for chromogranin and synaptophysin. In the range of neuroendocrine tumors of the lung, a combination with other histological types of carcinoma (squamous, adcno, large cell and pleomorphic) can be found with both small cell carcinoma and large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma, but is very rare with typical and atypical carcinoids.
