adenocarcinoid

adenocarcinoid

A general term for neuroendocrine neoplasms that differ from classical carcinoids; because the term can be applied to both goblet cell carcinoids and tubular carcinoids, which have different appearances and clinical behaviours, use of the term is discouraged.

adenocarcinoid

see goblet-cell carcinoid.
