Well-differentiated fetal adenocarcinoma of the lung: clinicopathologic features of 45 cases in China.
WDFA is very different to conventional adenocarcinoma in clinicopathology, it prefers to occur in the second and third decades, and Beta-catenin may be a potential marker for disease.
Well‐differentiated fetal adenocarcinoma of the lung mimicking adenoid cystic carcinoma on fine needle aspiration: A case report
The fine needle aspiration findings of a case of well‐differentiated fetal adenocarcinoma of the lung in a 44‐year‐old man with an incidental lung nodule revealed three‐dimensional clusters of epithelial cells with scant cytoplasm, hyperchromatic nuclei that are associated with an extracellular metachromatic matrix.

The method described here should be compared with commercial LBC in terms of quality and cost, especially as it appears that preparation of cell blocks is often essential to diagnosis in conventional LBC for non-gynaecological cytology.
Aspiration cytomorphology of fetal adenocarcinoma of the lung.
Cytomorphologic attributes included small, uniform, round nuclei; morules; and neuroendocrine differentiation in glandular epithelial cells; Immunochemically, all tumors manifested epithelial and neuro endocrine differentiation.
