NCI Definition: A low, intermediate, or high grade malignant neoplasm with neuroendocrine differentiation that arises from the lung. This category includes typical carcinoid tumor, atypical carcinoid tumor, small cell carcinoma, large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma, and combined carcinoma. [1]

Lung neuroendocrine neoplasms most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, RB1, KMT2D, CREBBP, and NOTCH1 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Lung Neuroendocrine Neoplasm

TP53 Mutation, TP53 Missense, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, RB1 Mutation, and TP53 Exon 5 Mutation are the most common alterations in lung neuroendocrine neoplasm [2].
