Large-cell lung carcinoma

large cell lung carcinoma, poorly differentiated large cell lung carcinoma
Large-cell carcinoma LCC is a heterogeneous group of undifferentiated malignant neoplasms that lack the cytologic and architectural features of small cell carcinoma and glandular or squamous differentiation LCC is categorized as a type of NSCLC Non-Small Cell Carcinoma which originates from epithelial cells of the lung1

Incidenceedit

In most series, LCLC's comprise between 5% and 10% of all lung cancers

According to the Nurses' Health Study, the risk of large cell lung carcinoma increases with a previous history of tobacco smoking, with a previous smoking duration of 30 to 40 years giving a relative risk of approximately 23 compared to never-smokers, and a duration of more than 40 years giving a relative risk of approximately 362

Another study concluded that cigarette smoking is the predominant cause of large cell lung cancer It estimated that the odds ratio associated with smoking two or more packs/day for current smokers is 370 in men and 729 in women3

Diagnosisedit

LCC is, in effect, a "diagnosis of exclusion", in that the tumor cells lack light microscopic characteristics that would classify the neoplasm as a small-cell carcinoma, squamous-cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, or other more specific histologic type of lung cancer

LCC is differentiated from small-cell lung carcinoma SCLC primarily by the larger size of the anaplastic cells, a higher cytoplasmic-to-nuclear size ratio, and a lack of "salt-and-pepper" chromatin

Classificationedit

The newest revisions of the World Health Organization WHO "Histological Typing of Lung Cancer schema" include several variants of LCC, including:

  • Giant-cell carcinoma of the lung
  • Basaloid large cell carcinoma of the lung
  • Clear cell carcinoma of the lung
  • Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the lung
  • Large-cell lung carcinoma with rhabdoid phenotype
  • Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the lung

Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma LCNECedit

One clinically significant subtype is "large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma" LCNEC,4 which is believed to derive from neuroendocrine cells5

In addition, a "subvariant", called "combined large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma" or c-LCNEC, is recognized under the new system To be designated a c-LCNEC, the tumor must contain at least 10% LCNEC cells, in combination with at least 10% of other forms of NSCLC
