NUT Midline Carcinoma Arising of the Mediastinum; mediastinal NUT midline carcinoma
NUT carcinoma must always be considered when there is abrupt keratinization.
The incidence of NMC within the mediastinum, particularly among undifferentiated tumors, is similar to that reported at other anatomic sites.
NMC should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any poorly differentiated epithelioid mediastinal tumor, regardless of age.
