#2922 Clinicopathological Characteristics of Borderline Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
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.

#3015 Biopsy Specimen Diagnosis in Pulmonary Carcinoids, A Shot in the Dark
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids (PCs) are rare well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, which can be separated into typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical carcinoid (AC). Advised treatment for local carcinoid disease is surgical resection using lobectomy, while parenchymal saving strategies such as sub-lobar or endobronchial resection might be considered for TC. In general, pre-operative diagnosis using a (transbronchial/transthoracic) biopsy sample is performed to demonstrate malignancy. However, TC and AC classification can solely be performed on surgical resection specimens, which may challenge pre-operative treatment decisions.
