Combined small cell carcinoma neuroendocrine type

Small cell carcinoma, neuroendocrine type (SCCNET) associated with a squa-mous or adenocarcinomatous compo nent are referred to as combined or composite carcinomas. They are unusual, representing less than 10% of all SCCNETs of the larynx. Only 14 cases have been described as of 2004. Most, if not all, have been associated with a squamous cell carcinoma, either in-situ or invasive {1201}. Treatment and prognosis is otherwise similar to that of a "pure" SCCNET.
