Article/Chapter Title: Pathology of adenocarcinoma
Abstract: This chapter summarizes the pathology of lung adenocarcinoma based on the 2011 IASLC/ATS/ERS classification. This has resulted in major changes including: (1) new concepts of AIS and minimally invasive adenocarcinoma (MIA) have been introduced; (2) the term bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC) is no longer used as tumors formerly classified under this term fall into five different places in this classification; (3) invasive adenocarcinomas are evaluated using comprehensive histologic subtyping with subtyping according to the predominant subtype; (4) the term lepidic predominant adenocarcinoma is used for tumors previously classified as "mixed subtype" adenocarcinoma with a predominant component formerly called nonmucinous BAC and the term "mixed subtype" is discontinued; (5) the micropapillary pattern is introduced as a new subtype with a poor prognosis; (6) tumors previously classified as mucinous BAC are now classified as invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma. An entirely new aspect of lung cancer diagnosis in small biopsies and cytology is now addressed. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. All rights reserved.
