3. METHODS The histologic typing of lung tumors is based on their light microscopic features, as seen in routine hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections. Immunohistochemistry and other special stains are usually not required for routine diagnosis or classification, although they may be helpful in certain situations. For example, a battery of immunostains is often required to distinguish adenocarcinoma with extensive pleural involvement from primary epithelial mesothelioma. Immunostains for neuroendocrine markers, such as chromogranin, synaptophysin, and Leu 7, are almost routinely used to confirm the diagnosis of the neuroendocrine tumors, especially large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma.
