Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a mesenchymal neoplasm usually affecting adolescents and young adults, with one third of cases occuring in the first two decades of life. SS is characterized by the specific balanced chromosomal translocation t(X;18)(p11;q11), resulting in the fusion of SYT gene on chromosome 18 with SSX1, SSX2 or SSX4 gene on chromosome X. SS predominantly arises in the soft tissue around large joints of the lower extremities. Other sites include head and neck, thorax, heart or pericardium, abdomen and pelvis...

Dyshormonogenetic goitre, being rare, infrequently reaches the cytopathologist's desk. This letter reports a case of a child with dyshormonogenetic goitre, highlighting its cytological features and common differential diagnosis. Dyshormonogenetic goitre (DG) is a rare cause of congenital hypothyroidism, resulting from lack of enzymes necessary for biosynthesis/ transport of thyroid hormones.

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the reliability of imprint cytology (IC) for intraoperative diagnosis of pulmonary lesions. METHODS: We reviewed 113 cases of pulmonary lesion resection for which a scratch imprint was made intraoperatively. We divided the specimens into two groups (benign and malignant) and compared the scratch IC-based diagnoses against the final histopathological diagnoses in each group for concordance. We also analyzed those cases in which the scratch IC preparation was classified as inadequate...

Gastric type Adenocarcinoma (GAS) is a rare subtype of mucinous endocervical adenocarcinoma, which unlike usual endocervical-type adenocarcinoma (UEA), is not related to Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). GAS is distinguished by aggressive behavior, higher stage presentation, unusual patterns of metastasis and poor survival outcome as compared to UEA. This article is protected by copyright.

INTRODUCTION: Twenty percent of colposcopic assessments are inadequate due to a type 3 transformation zone (TZ3). In the absence of colposcopic or histological assessment, subsequent management is guided by the referral screening test. In the UK routine cervical screening is completed by a Cervex-Brush alone. This study examines the effectiveness of a cytobrush in addition to a standard Cervex-Brush when used in TZ3 assessment. METHODOLOGY: An 18 month diagnostic accuracy study in a single NHS Trust...

The recently described non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) is an indolent tumour (1). Patients are spared the burden of a cancer diagnosis and should be managed initially by hemithyroidectomy, rather than total thyroidectomy (1,2). Histologically, diagnostic criteria for NIFTP include a well-circumscribed/encapsulated tumour with a follicular architecture and nuclear features of papillary carcinoma.

Metastasis to the parotid gland from breast cancer(BC) is extremely rare. A 37 year old female with a previous history of breast carcinoma presented with right cheek mass underwent fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) which revealed numerous epithelial cells showing moderate pleomorphism with presence of intracytoplasmic mucin which created a cytological dilemma to differentiate from primary mucin secreting adenocarcinoma.

BACKGROUND: Insulinoma-associated protein 1 (INSM1) has been reported to be a useful marker for diagnosing pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). However, INSM1 expression in endoscopic ultrasound-fine needle aspiration cytology (EUS-FNAC) has not been examined. We evaluated INSM1 expression in the cytology of cases diagnosed with PNETs. METHODS: We immunocytochemically stained INSM1 and Ki-67 in 14 PNET cases, and according to the 2017 World Health Organization criteria, 7 PNET Grade 1 (G1) cases, 4 Grade 2 (G2) cases, and 3 Grade 3 (G3)/neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) cases were identified...

OBJECTIVE: In 2016, there were an estimated 56 870 new cases of thyroid cancer (TC) in the USA. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is the most safe, accurate and cost-effective method for the initial investigation of thyroid nodules. FNAC is limited by the inability to diagnose malignancy in follicular-patterned lesions accurately and, as a result, 20%-30% of cases under investigation for TC are classified as cytologically indeterminate, illustrating a problem with current FNAC procedure...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to develop and reinforce a clinical management regimen for atypical endometrial cell (ATEC) categories within the descriptive reporting format for endometrial cytology. METHODS: Between January 2013 and December 2014, 215 samples, for which histological examination was performed immediately or within 3 months after cytology, were cytologically diagnosed as ATEC. For these samples, the medical records were retrospectively reviewed to identify risk factors for malignancy...

OBJECTIVE: Peer review of equivocal/abnormal Papanicolaou smears is a standard internal quality assurance measure in cervical cancer screening laboratories. In 2014, we introduced a new method for peer review involving blinding the identity of the first reader. We present the comparison of different measures of inter-reader agreement in 2013 and 2014 in order to measure the impact of blind peer review on possible cognitive biases in reading. METHODS: All suspect slides are proposed for peer review; a single reader's peer reviews are registered independently, with discordant cases discussed for consensus diagnosis...

OBJECTIVE: Interest in immune therapies has exploded since the 2014 approval of first generation programed cell death 1 (PD-1) blocking antibodies for use in advanced melanoma. Clinical trials have focused primarily on histologic material as the gold standard for evaluating PD-L1 by immunoperoxidase (IPOX) studies. Studies validating the use of cytologic specimens in the assessment of PD-L1 by IPOX staining are needed to optimize tissue utilization in complementary diagnostic testing...

OBJECTIVE: Fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy for evaluation of spongiform nodules ≥20 mm or observation without FNA was recommended by American Thyroid Association. However, this was a weak recommendation supported by moderate quality evidence. We aimed to assess malignancy risk in spongiform nodules. METHODS: From January 2015 to June 2016, an experienced endocrinologist performed B-mode greyscale ultrasonography and observed 96 spongiform nodules among 3748 ultrasound procedures...

AIMS: Conventional smears (CS) of samples obtained by fine-needle aspiration (FNA) have proven useful in thyroid nodules evaluation, but the additional contribution of cell block (CB) has only been marginally investigated. In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether the auxiliary application of CB adds to the diagnostic accuracy of the CS by a College of American Pathologists (CAP) -accredited hospital laboratory. METHODS: All thyroid FNA samples processed with CS only or combined CB and CS in West China Hospital from January 2011 to December 2015 were retrospectively collected...

OBJECTIVE: Because of the indolent nature of Noninvasive Follicular Thyroid Neoplasm with Papillary-Like Nuclear Features (NIFTP) and potential requisite for conservative treatment, it is crucial to identify features of this entity pre-operatively. Our group recently published our findings that there are several cytomorphologic features that may be used as clues to distinguish NIFTP, PTC and follicular adenoma (FA) on fine-needle aspiration (FNA). Therefore, we aimed to determine the interobserver reproducibility of these findings...
