Clinical outcomes of patients with lung adenocarcinoma were analyzed with respect to the histologic subtype of adenocarcinoma.  Histologic pattern was associated with sex, T status, N status, and stage.  Recurrence was higher in patients with micropapillary and solid tumors. These subtypes were associated with extrathoracic-only recurrence.  They were also independent predictors of survival.
