Question
MP/H Rules/Histology--Colon: Can we use rule H9 for a neuroendocrine tumor of the colon? What is the morphology code?

See discussion.

Discussion
Intestine, large

moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma

Pathological stage: IIIA (T2 N1a Mx)

Neuroendocrine tumor, G1

Addendum comment:

The results of the immunochemical study are compatible with a neuroendocrine tumor, G1.

Answer
Rule H9 applies. Assign code 8244/3. Neuroendocrine tumor, G1 is synonymous with carcinoid tumor for the purpose of rule H9.
