OBJECTIVE: Salivary gland cytology is challenging because it includes a diversity of lesions and a wide spectra of tumours. Recently, it has been reported that many types of salivary gland tumours have specific molecular diagnostic signatures that could be identified by fluorescent in-situ hybridisation (FISH). The aim of the present study was to demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of FISH on routine cytological salivary gland smears. METHODS: FISH was conducted on 37 cytological salivary gland smears from 34 patients...

INTRODUCTION: Indeterminate diagnoses are rendered on 15%-30% of thyroid fine-needle aspirates (FNA). Thus, a second diagnostic opinion given by an outside expert pathologist is a common practice that facilitates a more appropriate clinical management. Conversely, the role of an intra-institutional second opinion diagnosis (iSOD), which is usually informally performed in-house, has not been well established. METHODS: To assess the contribution of iSOD, a retrospective series of 34 thyroid FNA diagnosed as follicular neoplasm/suspicious follicular neoplasm (FN/SFN) with matched histological follow-up and a malignancy rate of 17...

OBJECTIVE: Rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) has been shown to be beneficial in determining the adequacy and a preliminary diagnosis in multiple organ systems. However, little is known regarding the diagnostic values and agreement of ROSE compared with a final cytological diagnosis in salivary gland fine needle aspiration (FNA). The aim of the present study was to evaluate agreement and compare accuracy between ROSE and a final cytological diagnosis of salivary gland FNA, using a final histological diagnosis as a gold standard...

OBJECTIVE: Intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IP ChT) is an emerging modality in the treatment of advanced gastric adenocarcinoma with peritoneal disease. Cytological evaluation of peritoneal fluid specimens from patients undergoing IP ChT is important in clinical management. However, direct intraperitoneal exposure to chemotherapeutic agents induces cytomorphological changes in benign constituents of peritoneal fluid, presenting particular challenges to accurate cytological interpretation...

OBJECTIVE: To identify factors that influence the inter-observer reproducibility of the routine, conventional Pap smear cytology (Pap smear test) in a network of certificated laboratories in a middle-income Latin American country. METHODS: Twenty-six laboratories provided each an average of 26 negative for malignancy (NILM) and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL) Pap smears. An external panel reviewed the slides. The kappa index and multilevel logistic regression were used to estimate the reproducibility and odds ratios (OR) of a false result with 95% confidence intervals (95% CI), respectively...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate and compare the DNA yield and quality extracted from lymph node fine needle cytology (FNC) samples stored on FTA cards to those cryopreserved, and to assess the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains (IGHK) and T-Cell receptor beta and gamma chains (TCRBG) PCR tests. METHODS: DNA extractions were performed on FNC of 80 non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL), four myelomas and 56 benign reactive hyperplasias (BRH) cryopreserved and stored on FTA cards...

OBJECTIVE: Cytology samples can sometimes yield cell blocks of low cellularity that are inadequate for cytomorphological evaluation and ancillary studies. The purpose of this study was to analyse the value of cell count based-triaging of samples for cell block preparation. METHODS: Cell blocks were prepared from different cytology samples using HistoGel™ according to the manufacturer's instructions following cell count assessment. The adequacy of cell blocks was semi-quantitatively scored as empty, scanty, moderate or highly cellular by evaluating corresponding haematoxylin and eosin (H&E) sections...

OBJECTIVE: Although microvascular proliferation is a key feature in the diagnosis of high-grade glioma, the characteristics of metastatic tumour vessels in smear preparations have not been documented. In this study, the vascular changes in metastatic brain tumours, using squash cytology to examine the vascular patterns in brain metastases, were reviewed. METHODS: One hundred and forty-three squash smears of brain tissue, including 25 normal or reactive tissue, 23 malignant lymphomas, 8 grade I glioma (pilocytic astrocytoma), 23 grade II glioma (diffuse astrocytoma and oligodendroglioma), 42 grade IV glioma (glioblastoma), and 22 metastasis, were assessed...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate double immunocytochemical staining with p53 and CK20, as a tool for improving the accuracy of urinary cytology. The aim of the present study was to clarify the diagnostic significance of the expression of these markers and to investigate the possibility of using this information for better monitoring of bladder cancer patients during follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One hundred and twenty-five urine cytology cases were retrieved with corresponding histology from our files...

OBJECTIVE: Endometrial cytology has been widely used as a screening tool in Japan. Traditionally, a three-tier reporting system, consisting of 'negative', 'suspicious' and 'positive' categories, has been used. However, a more descriptive system, the New Terminology in Endometrial Cytology (NTEMC), which is based on the Bethesda System for uterine cervical cytology, was introduced recently. The objective of this study was to validate the NTEMC criteria. METHODS: Endometrial cytology specimens that had been categorised as 'suspicious' were collected in our hospital between 2003 and 2013, and from these, 106 specimens with corresponding histological results, were re-evaluated according to the NTEMC criteria...

OBJECTIVE: To assess both the feasibility and value of conducting an external quality assurance programme concerning technical aspects of cytopathology laboratory practice, and the interest by laboratories in enrolling in such a programme. METHODS: Six technical surveys, comprising staining exercises and questionnaires relating to laboratory practice, were distributed over a 4-year period to the approximately 220 laboratories enrolled in the RCPAQAP Cytopathology slide survey modules...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and the learning curve of the endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (EUS-FNAB) diagnostics of pancreatic lesions over 8 years (2007-2014). MATERIAL AND METHODS: EUS-FNAB using a Linear Echoendoscope Olympus was performed in 531 patients, mostly without rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE). Smears plus cytoblock sections were used routinely. Immunocytochemistry was utilised as indicated. RESULTS: The average, satisfactory sampling rate increased from the 61...
