There is strong evidence that DIPNECH leads to carcinogenesis in case of pulmonary carcinoid tumors, so suggestions were made to alter the classification of pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors by dividing them in two groups, one consisting of typical and atypical carcinoids as low-grade malignancies of the lung originating from DIPNECH and the other, containing the high-grade malignant neoplasms, like the small-cell carcinoma and the large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the lung [2-5].
1,27,28) In this setting, progression to carcinoid tumors (both typical and atypical) has been documented, (27) and therefore, DIPNECH has been included in the 2004 WHO classification as a preneoplastic condition.
