METASTATIC ATYPICAL CARCINOID TUMORS TO OTHER BODY SITES Atypical carcinoid tumors metastasize more frequently than typical carcinoid tumors do. The common sites are hilar/mediastinal lymph nodes, liver, bones, serous membranes skin, and subcutaneous tissues. 47 LARGE CELL NEUROENDOCRINE CARCINOMA (LCNEC), (NEC, GRADE III, POORLY DIFFERENTIATED NEC, HIGHGRADE NEC) LCNECs have been fairly recently recognized as a subtype of pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors, characterized by their distinctive morphology such as neuroendocrine growth patterns, large cells with coarse nuclear chromatin, prominent nucleoli, variable amounts of cytoplasm, high mitotic rate, infarct-like necrosis, and neuroendocrine differentiation both immunohistochemically and ultrastructurally.

The carcinoid tumors are often submucosal in location and do not yield to brushings. In bronchial washings, the carcinoid tumor cells tend to shrink and are not easily recognized (Fig. 8). The bronchial epithelium overlying a submucosal lesion may undergo squamous metaplasia. With varying degrees of cellular and nuclear atypia, the brushings of this metaplastic squamous epithelium may be interpreted as squamous carcinoma, resulting in a false-positive diagnosis (Fig. 21A–C). 3). The benign entities, such as reserve cell hyperplasia, bronchial epithelial cell (columnar cell) hyperplasia, lymphocytes, and alveolar lining cells (in washings and lavage specimens), may mimic the cells of carcinoid tumor (see Figs.
