Annotations:

Papillary adenoma.
Nodule in one lobe of the lung, multiple lesions in another lobe. The multiple lesions are similar in structure and cell morphology as is the large adenoma in the other lobe. Two lesions are growing into bronchiolar lumens. Papillary adenoma is well circumscribed and composed of papillary structures. Papillary structures are lined by a single layer of well differentiated tumor cells with moderate amount of eosinophilic cytoplasm.
