Hi Terry,
  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.
