Introduction This retrospective morphological study compared the results of fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology, haematoxylin-eosin (HE)-stained samples and immunohistochemical (IHC)-stained core needle biopsy (CNB) histology samples for primary non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) subtyping. We assessed the diagnostic utility of these methods to investigate the contribution of each method to NSCLC subtyping. We also identified the point at which NSCLC subtyping could be performed using histomorphology alone without IHC.
