I agree with you about smear cells. Coincidently, yesterday a colleague brought me
a case he thought was oat cell. Nuclei were typical neuroendocrine salt and
pepper, but there was no smearing at all, and many nice intact clusters. I was
very reluctant to agree with oat cell and questioned whether it was a somewhat
better differentiated neuroendocrine tumor or even an adeno masquerading. I think the absence of this can also be a clue.
I remember the smearing being referred to as Azzopardi Phenomenon in my training but now that you mention it I have seen the changes you referred to under this name.
I stand corrected.
