This study aimed to detect micrometastatic tumor cells in the lymph nodes of patients with pN0 lung adenocarcinoma using a combination of thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) expression and cytokeratin 7 (CK7) expression and to investigate the association of lymph node micrometastasis with the clinicopathological characteristics of patients with lung adenocarcinoma. A total of 54 patients with pN0 lung adenocarcinoma and whose primary tumors were positive for both TTF-1 and CK7 expression were included in this study.
