BACKGROUND: We aimed to identify clinicopathologic characteristics and risk of invasiveness of lung adenocarcinoma in surgically resected pure ground-glass opacity lung nodules (GGNs) smaller than 2 cm. METHODS: Among 755 operations for lung cancer or tumors suspicious for lung cancer performed from 2012 to 2016, we retrospectively analyzed 44 surgically resected pure GGNs smaller than 2 cm in diameter on computed tomography (CT). RESULTS: The study group was composed of 36 patients including 11 men and 25 women with a median age of 59.5 years (range, 34-77). Median follow-up duration of pure GGNs was 6 months (range, 0-63). Median maximum diameter of pure GGNs was 8.5 mm (range, 4-19). Pure GGNs were resected by wedge resection, segmentectomy, or lobectomy in 27 (61.4%), 10 (22.7%), and 7 (15.9%) cases, respectively. Pathologic diagnosis was atypical adenomatous hyperplasia, adenocarcinoma in situ, minimally invasive adenocarcinoma (MIA), or invasive adenocarcinoma (IA) in 1 (2.3%), 18 (40.9%), 15 (34.1%), and 10 (22.7%) cases, respectively. The optimal cutoff value for CT-maximal diameter to predict MIA or IA was 9.1 mm. In multivariate analyses, maximal CT-maximal diameter of GGNs ≥10 mm (odds ratio, 24.050; 95% confidence interval, 2.6-221.908; p = 0.005) emerged as significant independent predictor for either MIA or IA. Estimated risks of MIA or IA were 37.2, 59.3, 78.2, and 89.8% at maximal GGN diameters of 5, 10, 15, and 20 mm, respectively. CONCLUSION: Pure GGNs were highly associated with lung adenocarcinoma in surgically resected cases, while estimated risk of GGNs invasiveness gradually increased as maximal diameter increased.
