It is an uncommon: Type, always associated with tobacco, characteristic cellular appearance of dominant hyperchromatic nuclei, no nucleolus, scant cytoplasm. Stains with chromogranin, synaptophysin, molecular loss of rb, over production of bcl-2. It responds to chemo, but needs XRT in limited. Goes to many organs early. Need at least chemo and XRT doc to assess.
