OBJECTIVE: Approximately 10% of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains unclassifiable as NSCLC-not otherwise specified (NOS), after using a panel of immunomarkers. The present study was undertaken to assess sensitivity and specificity of immunomarkers in sub-typing NSCLC on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations were also detected in these samples. METHODS: Sixty cases of NSCLC including 15 squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), 15 adenocarcinomas (ADC) and 30 NSCLC-NOS reported on FNAC were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: Persistent infection with oncogenic high risk HPV (hrHPV) types causes virtually all cases of cervical cancer. HPV 16 and 18 have been targeted for individual genotyping and vaccination because of their presence in 71% of invasive cervical cancers worldwide. Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, New York serves a population known for ethnic and racial diversity. Given this diversity it is possible that HPV genotypes not individually detected by current testing are causing significant disease...

OBJECTIVE: Compared to other chest wall malignancies, lymphoma is a common disease. However, published literature on a series of lymphoma cases involving the chest wall is scarce. The aim of the present study, was to describe experience with chest wall swellings diagnosed as lymphoid neoplasms on fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology. METHODS: Eleven chest wall swellings were diagnosed as lymphoid neoplasms on FNA over a period of 15 years (January 2000-December 2014)...

OBJECTIVE: The Bethesda classification was introduced in 2008 to provide standardisation in the evaluation of thyroid fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). We compared the diagnostic value of pre-Bethesda and Bethesda classification systems in the differentiation of benign and malignant thyroid nodules. METHODS: Medical records of patients who underwent a thyroidectomy between June 2007 and June 2014 were reviewed retrospectively. Nodules evaluated with FNAC before March 2010 were classified as pre-Bethesda (non-diagnostic, benign, indeterminate, suspicious for malignancy and malignant), and those evaluated after March 2010 were considered Bethesda (non-diagnostic, benign, atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesion of undetermined significance, follicular neoplasia/suspicious for follicular neoplasia, suspicious for malignancy and malignant)...

INTRODUCTION: Soft tissue sarcomas comprise a heterogeneous group of clinically aggressive cancers that are often hard to classify on limited cytological samples. "Translocation sarcomas" (TS) are a diverse subset of such cancers, different from pleomorphic sarcomas, and characterised by unique single chromosomal translocations in each sarcoma subtype. Interestingly, despite their high-grade biological behaviour, TS have deceptively monotonous and bland cytomorphology, therefore creating diagnostic issues on limited samples...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the present study was to determine the malignancy risk for nodules categorised as atypia or follicular lesions of undetermined significance atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesion of undetermined significance (AUS/FLUS) and to investigate the predictors of malignancy. METHODS: All nodules diagnosed as AUS/FLUS on fine needle aspiration (FNAs) performed between January 2011 and December 2015 were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to compare the cytomorphological features and cytopathological diagnoses in thyroid aspiration materials prepared by SurePath® (SP) and conventional cytology (CC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fine needle aspiration (FNA) materials from 180 thyroid nodules were divided into two groups to prepare three conventional smears and one SP slide. Twenty-nine cytomorphological features of thyroid lesions were compared in the CC and SP slides...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the intra- and inter-observer reproducibility of the dual-stain biomarker, CINtec(®) PLUS cytology in ThinPrep(®) specimens, for improved specificity in the detection of cervical disease in women testing human papillomavirus (HPV) positive. METHODS: A total of 972 cases of HPV-positive women from a triage and primary HPV screening population were selected from an ongoing study evaluating the clinical performance of CINtec(®) PLUS cytology...

OBJECTIVE: The differential diagnosis of fibroadenoma (FA) and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) has been problematic in fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAC) because it has been difficult to differentiate between the "large epithelial clusters" associated with FA and those associated with DCIS. The purpose of this study was to prospectively validate the usefulness of immunocytochemical staining using cocktail antibody targeting p63/CK14 in the differential diagnosis of FA and DCIS. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty patients diagnosed as having an uncertain malignant potential (indeterminate) for breast cancer on the basis of a FNAC finding were selected randomly: ten patients with FA and ten with DCIS...

OBJECTIVE: To report two cases of Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) metastatic to the pancreas diagnosed with endoscopic ultrasound-guided-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) and to add the case of concomitant chronic lymphocytic leukaemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) and MCC to the literature. The aim is to alert the cytopathologists once more to the problems of differential diagnosis of pancreatic metastasis of MCC and to describe the possibilities of ancillary methods performed on direct cytological smears...

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: 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...
