Pulmonary spindle cell carcinoma is a rare and aggressive malignancy that often mimics benign conditions. We report 4 cases that simulate a pulmonary infarction, 2 of which were misdiagnosed. Patients were 3 men and 1 woman, smokers, presenting chest pain. All cases appeared as pleural-based, solitary, and rounded nodules. Patients underwent wedge resections followed by adjuvant chemotherapy (3/4) but died of disease. At histology, lesions consisted of widely necrotic nodules surrounded by organizing fibrosis and pleuritis. Examination and immunostains with pan-cytokeratins and epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) revealed atypical spindle cells encircling necrotic tissue and involving the vascular wall. Positive staining with PD-L1 was noted. Molecular analysis showed KRAS (2/4) and TP53 (1/4) mutations, whereas EGFR, ALK, and ROS1 alterations were not detected. Although in a limited series, these cases further evidence the treacherous appearance of spindle cell carcinomas and the need for careful attention when examining pulmonary infarcted tissue, thus requiring extensive sampling, meticulous examination of vascular structures, and immunostaining with cytokeratins.
