Lepidic predominant adenocarcinoma of lung

Lepidic predominant adenocarcinoma (LPA) of lung (formerly known as non-mucinous bronchoalveolar carcinoma) is a subtype of invasive adenocarcinoma of lung. This entities now replaces some of the lesions which fell under the now defunct term "bronchoalveolar carcinoma". These tend to be non mucinous lesions with > 5mm of invasion. This is usually a histological diagnosis and is applied when the lepidic component dominates in an invasive adenocarcinoma lesion.
