Overview

Biopsy is the diagnostic study of choice for adenocarcinoma of the lung. On microscopic histopathological analysis, nuclear atypia, eccentrically placed nuclei, abundant cytoplasm, and conspicuous nucleoli are characteristic findings of adenocarcinoma of the lung. Atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (AAH) is the precursor of peripheral adenocarcinomas. It consists of well-demarcated columnar or cuboidal cells with varying degrees of cytologic atypia, hyperchromasia, pleomorphism and prominent nucleoli.
