Abstract

Seventy-two lung tumours were investigated. Hamartomas, chondromas and lipomas were the most common mesenchymal, carcinoids the most common epithelial tumours. Few cases of mesenchymal tumours (schwannoma, leiomyoma) had to be analysed by immunohistochemistry. In epithelial tumours (carcinoids, clear cell tumour) an immunohistochemical investigation for epithelial and neuroendocrine markers was an aid for the light microscopic diagnosis. In all our metastasing carcinoids we found nuclear atypias and in addition to invasion of lymph and blood vessels and lymph node metastases these atypias were an indication for a poor prognosis of this carcinoid type.
