Cytologic factors associated with prognosis in patients with peripheral adenocarcinoma of the lung measuring 3 cm or less in greatest dimension



Cytologic factors associated with prognosis in patients with peripheral adenocarcinoma of the lung measuring 3 cm or less in greatest dimension



Cancer 105(1): 44-51



BACKGROUND. Recently, peripheral lung adenocarcinomas (PLA) measuring ltoreq 3 cm in greatest dimension often have been diagnosed using diagnostic radiology. The objective of the current study was to determine which cytologic factors are associated with a favorable outcome and an unfavorable outcome in patients with PLA. METHODS. imprint smears from 134 patients with PLA were examined.
