Introduction: The histologic classification of lung carcinoids (LCs) as typical (TCs) and atypical (ACs) highlights its role as major prognostic factor for these patients. However, in the absence of sensitive biomarkers to effectively predict tumor behavior, long-term imaging surveillance is recommended for disease monitoring. Limited data suggest that progastrin-releasing peptide (ProGRP) may have diagnostic & monitoring utility in LCs.Aim(s): To ev...
