Abstract

The main aim of this study was the analysis of undifferentiated cancers and mixed ones positive for neuroendocrine biomarkers without morphological features — typical for this type of cancer. The obtained results indicated the necessity for neuroendocrine marker tests in undifferentiated cancers and mixed ones. Immunopositive results revealed enhanced malignancy of these cancers and the necessity for additional chemotherapy.
