Recently it was suggested that a histopathologic diagnosis of apocrine hidrocystoma or cystadenoma on an incisional biopsy specimen from the fingers or toes should raise the suspicion of possible underlying digital papillary adenocarcinoma [9].

Based on these features and diffuse positive immunostaining for TTF-1 and Napsin A, and negative staining for Thyroglobulin, a diagnosis of primary pulmonary papillary adenocarcinoma was confirmed.
A biopsy of a left supraclavicular lymph node identified a metastatic papillary adenocarcinoma without atypia; some rare follicular structures were filled with eosinophilic material that mimicked a colloid (figure 2).

Recently, attention has been focused on dynamic changes in the lung that cause a pitfall in the diagnosis of pulmonary papillary adenocarcinoma. (2) It is certain that when one concentrates on a specific problem, one may not notice other, perhaps peripheral, issues.
Well-Differentiated Villoglandular Papillary Adenocarcinoma Versus Benign Mimics.--Well-differentiated villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma may rarely be confused with papillary endocervicitis, especially in small and very superficial biopsies or when papillary endocervicitis is very florid.
Furthermore, to examine whether elastin fibers are present in papillary adenocarcinoma tumor of the lung, metastases of pulmonary papillary adenocarcinomas that were hematogenic to the brain and skull (n = 2, respectively) and to the regional lymph nodes (n = 4) were stained with elastin (Figure 2, H).
If a tumor has lepidic growth, but the alveolar spaces are filled with papillary structures, the tumor is classified as papillary adenocarcinoma. Myofibroblastic stroma is not needed to diagnose this pattern.
The differential diagnosis includes other oral cavity minor salivary gland tumors such as PA, adenoid cystic carcinoma, and sometimes low-grade papillary adenocarcinoma of salivary gland origin (LGPASO).
