Diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a rare disorder that is commonly underdiagnosed. In 2015, it was recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of lung tumors as a premalignant lesion. DIPNECH syndrome is characterized by cough, exertional dyspnea, wheezing, and, less frequently, hemoptysis. We report the clinical and histological features and imaging findings in four cases of DIPNECH from our institution (Torrejon University Hospital, Madrid, Spain) between the years 2012 and 2019. DIPNECH represents a rare and poorly understood pulmonary disorder. Our limited single-center experience shows the slow and stable evolution of the disease. However, some exceptional cases may progress poorly if distant metastases occur.

Thymic carcinomas are the most aggressive histological subtype of thymic tumors with limited data to guide correct management. No standard treatments are available for patients with advanced thymic carcinoma after progressing while on platinum-based chemotherapy. We present a case of a patient with metastatic thymic carcinoma with an unusual response and favorable evolution after receiving treatment with sunitinib, obtaining a progression-free survival of 23 months, much higher than reported to date. We review the literature on the efficacy of sunitinib in metastatic thymic carcinoma after progression to first-line treatment with platinum combinations.
