Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors that arise from Kulchitzky cells of the bronchial mucosa consist of a spectrum of histologic features leading to a variable prognosis. Although typical carcinoid represents the most benign course, small-cell cancer has the grimmest outcome. Therefore, differentiating the spectrum of neuroendocrine tumors helps one not only to determine the prognosis, but also to guide the treatment options. In this part, we aim to discuss the treatment options in pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors except for small-cell lung cancer.
