Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) of the lung needs to be carefully distinguished from other lung tumors with similar features, particularly from adenosquamous carcinoma, this latter tumor frequently showing EGFR mutations. In contrast with the data reported by Han et al in the last July issue of Lung Cancer, neither EGFR nor K-RAS mutations were observed in MEC from caucasian patients.
