abstract

  • Although estrogen and progesterone receptor staining is frequently associated with breast and gynecologic primaries, it can also be observed in "nontarget" organs. Therefore, presence of estrogen and/or progesterone expression in neuroendocrine tumors involving the lung should not exclude a primary pulmonary neoplasm.
