An additional study by Shida et al (5) revealed that m/hASH1 was expressed in poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma, but was absent in gastroenteropancreatic carcinoids.
E, A small cell type of poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma with a high nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio, hyperchromatic nuclei, inconspicuous nucleoli, and nuclear molding.
These findings argue against the diagnostic value of using islet-1 to identify a pancreatic origin when dealing with a poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma.
Previous pathologic diagnosis varied and included the intermediate type of SC in 2 cases, mixed SC and LC in 1 case, high-grade AC in 1 case, and poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma in 1 case.
These 8 cases included 2 adenomas misdiagnosed as adenocarcinomas; a poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma of the anus, originally classified as a basaloid squamous cell carcinoma; a pancreatic adenocarcinoma, which was initially diagnosed as fat necrosis with a subsequent biopsy diagnosed as suggestive of mucinous cystic neoplasm; an overlooked cytomegalovirus infection in a colon biopsy; a colon biopsy diagnosed as acute and chronic inflammation, which was suggestive of chronic inflammatory bowel disease; an in situ squamous cell carcinoma of the anus, originally called microinvasive carcinoma; and a case of Helicobacter-associated chronic active gastritis, originally called an atypical lymphoid infiltrate.

Only 8% of poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas of the larynx have been reported to metastasize to the central nervous system as a preterminal event.
Poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (small-cell or oat-cell tumors) also occur in older men in the supraglottis; patients frequently have hoarseness, a neck mass, and a distant metastasis.
a) For poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) checklist for carcinoma of the appendix1 should be used.
