Bronchial carcinoid tumors are primary lung neoplasms thought to originate from neuroendocrine cells, i.e. Kulchitsky cells, in the bronchial mucosa, although the type of cellular origin has not been clearly understood. A 61-year-old male patient underwent surgery and microscopic examination of the specimen revealed an anastomosing trabecular bony structure among the nests of tumor cells with round nucleus, granular chromatin, and large eosinophilic cytoplasm. Our case has been deemed worthy of being presented as bronchial carcinoid tumor with exaggerated osseous metaplasia.

A 45-year-old woman, who had been treated for bronchial asthma, was referred to our hospital with symptoms of dyspnea. Upon examination, we found the right main bronchus to be almost completely occlud...
Carcinoid tumours have the ability to secrete various peptides and bioamines that lead to carcinoid syndrome manifested as cutaneous flushing, diarrhoea, bronchial constriction and cardiac involvement...
Patients with carcinoid tumors are at risk for profound intraoperative hypotension known as carcinoid crisis, which catecholamines are traditionally believed to trigger. However, data supporting this ...
The Tumor Lymph Node and Metastasis (TNM) classification for lung cancer, originally designed for non-small cell lung carcinoma, is applied to staging of bronchopulmonary carcinoid tumors. The validit...
Removal of tumors that invade the trachea or carina often results in a massive defect that exceeds the limits of end-to-end anastomosis. The purpose of this study is to discuss the clinical value of b...
Carcinoid tumors of the lung are considered to be a low-grade malignancy. Surgical resection is considered the standard approach. Recent data has shown that a complete endoscopic treatment...
This is a prospective phase II open-label trial, stratifying patients equally into two cohorts consisting of carcinoid tumors and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). The purpose of t...
This study will examine whether the new investigational drug EPO906, given by intravenous infusion (IV directly into the vein), is effective in shrinking tumors and preventing the growth o...
Carcinoid Heart Disease (CHD) is a rare form of heart disease, occurring in over 50% of the patients with carcinoid syndrome. Pathophysiology, prognostic factors of development of Carcinoi...
There is a high incidence among the first degree relatives of the carcinoid patients, indicating the involvement of genetic components in its initiation and pathogenesis.
A symptom complex associated with CARCINOID TUMOR and characterized by attacks of severe flushing of the skin, diarrheal watery stools, bronchoconstriction, sudden drops in blood pressure, edema, and ascites. The carcinoid tumors are usually located in the gastrointestinal tract and metastasize to the liver. Symptoms are caused by tumor secretion of serotonin, prostaglandins, and other biologically active substances. Cardiac manifestations constitute CARCINOID HEART DISEASE. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)
Thermal destruction of the excess bronchial SMOOTH MUSCLE tissue with heat delivered through a catheter assembly attached to a BRONCHOSCOPE. It is often used to control BRONCHIAL HYPERREACTIVITY in severe ASTHMA for better AIRWAY MANAGEMENT.
Tumors or cancer of the BRONCHI.
Left bronchial arteries arise from the thoracic aorta, the right from the first aortic intercostal or the upper left bronchial artery; they supply the bronchi and the lower trachea.
Cardiac manifestation of gastrointestinal CARCINOID TUMOR that metastasizes to the liver. Substances secreted by the tumor cells, including SEROTONIN, promote fibrous plaque formation in ENDOCARDIUM and its underlying layers. These deposits cause distortion of the TRICUSPID VALVE and the PULMONARY VALVE eventually leading to STENOSIS and valve regurgitation.
