A case of oncocytic carcinoid of the lung

A case of oncocytic carcinoid of the lung

Japanese Journal of Chest Diseases 50(3): 227-232

A 43-year-old male was admitted to Tokuyama central hospital because of bloody sputum. A chest roentgenogram revealed a coin lesion in the left lower lung field. Left lower lobectomy and lymphadenectomy were perfomed. Microscopically, the tumor was composed of large cells which contained abundant granular eosinophilic cytoplasm and was thought to be an oncocytoma at first. But electron-microscopic examination revealed hyperplasia of numerous mitochondria and neurosecretory granules in the cytoplasm of the tumor cells and the tumor was considered to be an oncocytic carcinoid. The patient has been well for 12 months after the surgery without any sign of local recurrence or metastasis.
