In 1999, it was approved to treat advanced gastric cancer and then such indications as head and neck neoplasm, inoperable or unresectable breast cancer, non- small cell carcinoma
, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer and bile duct cancer.
Small cell carcinoma
of the upper urinary tract (UUT-SCC): Report of a rare entity and systematic review of the literature.
The histopathologic differential diagnosis mainly includes basal cell carcinoma, lymphoma, melanoma, and metastatic small cell carcinoma
Immunohistochemistry is a powerful adjunct to conventional morphology and can be well applied to non-small cell and small cell carcinoma
lung carcinomas where tissue is limited and targeted therapies impose a strain on pathologists to establish a reliable classification.
passed away at age 62 from small cell carcinoma
in December; the actor was flooded with positive responses after sharing the story.
Extrapulmonary small cell carcinoma
arising in the prostate gland has been described in several case series and case reports.
The cytologic differential diagnosis of PNET includes lymphoma, neuroblastoma, embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, small cell carcinoma
, synovial sarcoma, small cell variant of melanoma, basaloid squamous cell carcinoma and poorly differentiated non keratinized squamous cell carcinoma (13-18).
Given the patient's history of primary small cell carcinoma
of the lung, metastatic small cell carcinoma
was also considered.
19), (20) In addition to expression in LADC, TTF-1 is also expressed in thyroid (80%) and small cell carcinoma
of the lung, which may mimic NSCLC especially when poorly differentiated.
Its histopathological designation is based on the World Health Organization classification system, with 4 cell types responsible for most deaths: adenocarcinoma (including bronchoalveolar carcinoma), squamous cell carcinoma, large cell (undifferentiated) carcinoma and small cell carcinoma
Researchers discuss such aspects as cytological tools to help the diagnosis and management, distinguishing small cell carcinoma
from large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma, the impact of tumor motion in the three-dimensional radiotherapy of lung cancer, clinical presentation and diagnostic modalities, whether the curative thoracic radiotherapy is cost-effective in extensive-state small cell lung cancer, optimal treatment of small cell lung cancer, and therapeutic strategy for primary and pure neuroendocrine carcinoma of the bladder.
According to these findings the tumor was considered as metastasis from small cell carcinoma
