Abstract

Background: Nuclear protein of the testis (NUT) midline carcinoma is genetically defined by rearrangement of NUT or by immunohis-tochemical expression of NUT. Findings: A 6-year old child had a NUT midline carcinoma of the lung. Despite aggressive therapy, the child died. Conclusion: NUT carcinoma, which can be diagnosed immunohistochemically, remains an aggressive tumor.
