bronchial adenomas

bronchial adenomas
adenomas situated in the submucosal tissues of large bronchi, thought to be derived from neuroendocrine cells. Sometimes composed of well-differentiated cells and usually circumscribed, they are almost always carcinoid in histologic form. Although termed adenomas, these tumors are now recognized as being of low-grade malignancy.
