Nasty. Are these things are usually "pure" scc or can you often find areas of glandular differentiation in these guys?

You can sometimes see bits of both. This is a particullary anaplastic appearing SCC. So, as an aside, if you find yourself wondering why your oncologist is now making a big deal about whether a tumor is squamous or adeno. I lifted this from the FDA package insert for Avastin: "AVASTINĀ®, in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel, is indicated for firstline treatment of patients with unresectable, locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic non-squamous, non-small cell lung cancer."
