Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNC) is one example of lung large cell carcinoma (LCC), that shares the same characteristics with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) such as massive proliferation rates and neuroendocrine phenotype but lacks cytomorphology of SCLC (79, 80).

It was thought to be related to epithelioid sarcoma because of its multifocal presentation on a single limb, often with osseous involvement, and its myoid cytomorphology with keratin-positive spindle cells.

In our case, the majority of the tumor, however, has characteristic histomorphologic features of diffuse-type neurofibroma with rare areas showing transition to frank MPNST, characterized by increased cellularity, nuclear atypia, and epithelioid cytomorphology. Although epithelioid MPNST is regarded as high grade by default, our case was designated as low grade because the epithelioid foci were scant and the bulk of the tumor was low grade in fact.
[12] classified HG-ESS into three subgroups based on morphology: (I) tumors with a component that is similar to LG-ESS and transitions abruptly into a higher-grade component; (II) tumors composed exclusively of high-grade round cells with uniform nuclear features but with a permeative pattern of infiltration; and (III) tumors similar to the second group but with cytomorphology featuring enlarged round to ovoid cells with smooth nuclear membranes and distinct chromatin clearing but lacking prominent nucleoli.
