Refactory hypoxemia due to intrapulmonary shunting associated with bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
Mimicking Tuberculosis-A Case Report With Autopsy Findings.
The term mucinous bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
is no longer used just as the term bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
is no longer used.
But now, after decades of beneficial service, the term bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
has itself fallen victim to our better understanding of lung cancer.
In their review, "The Demise of the Term Bronchiolo-alveolar Carcinoma" Drs Allen and Butt state, "The term bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
serves as a good example of a utile, descriptive term that, over time, with increased understanding, ran its course and attained obsolescence.
Frequency of EGFR and KRAS mutations in Japanese patients with lung adenocarcinoma with features of the mucinous subtype of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
The classification further subdivides MA depending on the extent of lepidic versus invasive growth pattern into MA in situ, mucinous minimally invasive ACA, or invasive MA (formerly classified as mucinous bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
according to the 2004 World Health Organization classification scheme).
arising in a congenital pulmonary airway malformation in a child: case report with an update of this association.
Repeat CT scan after 3 months revealed growth of the lesion, and a transthoracic needle biopsy was performed, from which a diagnosis of nonmucinous adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS, formerly bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
(2)) was made.
Molecular characteristics of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
and adenocarcinoma, bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
subtype, predict response to erlotinib.
These relate to the discontinuation of the terms bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
and adenocarcinoma, mixed subtype, as well as the introduction of micropapillary as a new histologic subtype, the term lepidic pattern for the former bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
growth pattern, and the specific term invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma for overtly invasive tumors previously classified as mucinous bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
For example, the term bronchioloalveolar carcinoma
(BAC) was very confusing as it was used in several different ways in the revised classification (1) to encompass 5 different types of lung adenocarcinoma with dramatically different clinical and pathologic characteristics.
