Introduction: According to the WHO 2015 classification pulmonary neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are subdivided in carcinoids and neuroendocrine carcinoma (small cell lung carcinoma and large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC)), based on the presence of necrosis and mitotic index (MI). However, in some NENs a discrepancy is observed between grade of differentiation and proliferation rate.
