As we have over the decades come to better understand lung neoplasia and preneoplasia, bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (far from being understood as a single, specific lesion as it was originally considered) has leant its appellation to 5 clinically and pathologically distinct entities, namely, 3 nonmucinous lesions (adenocarcinoma in situ, minimally invasive adenocarcinoma, and adenocarcinoma with a prominent lepidic pattern) and 2 mucinous lesions (mucinous adenocarcinoma in situ and mucinous adenocarcinoma).
