Conclusion

 

Neuroendocrine tumors of the lung have a broad spectrum, that radiologist needs to know to do different diagnosis, to impact in the patients outcome.

 

Neuroendocrine tumors may be diagnosed incidentally in asymptomatic patients and should be considered in risk population with CT evidence of pulmonary micronodules and air trapping.

 

Pulmonary neuroendocrine carcinomas are aggressive, large pulmonary masses. Affected patients often present with metastatic disease, and the lesions are indistinguishable from other aggressive lung cancers.

 

Enhancement computed tomography represents an excellent imaging method to help differentiate neuroendocrine lung tumors from lung cancer.
