REVIEW
Daniela C Malheiros, Sule Canberk, David N Poller, Fernando Schmitt
In this paper, we aim to focus on false positive results in the evaluation of thyroid aspirations, covering cystic, inflammatory, follicular and oncocytic lesions, papillary carcinoma, and medullary carcinoma of thyroid. The recently described entity, "noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features" (NIFTP), is also discussed detailing the impact of its introduction on the sensitivity and specificity of thyroid FNA, as well as the use of molecular tests for diagnostics...

Cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) is a rare autosomal recessive metabolic disease caused by inactivating mutations in the CYP27A1 gene, encoding for sterol 21-hydroxylase, a mitochondrial enzyme, involved in bile acid synthesis. First reported by Bogaert in 1937, hundreds of cases have been described since,1 with an estimated prevalence of <5 per one million people worldwide. The enzyme deficiency leads to decreased bile acid synthesis with resultant excess production and tissue accumulation of cholestanol...

OBJECTIVE: The current study aimed to compare cytology using SurePath liquid-based cytology (SP-LBC) and biliary tissue histology (BTH) for the diagnosis of biliary disease. METHODS: Between January 2014 and December 2016, 57 patients underwent endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography for the diagnosis of biliary disease. Biliary cytological samples were processed using SP-LBC and subsequently BTH was performed. A final diagnosis was confirmed by surgery (23 malignant cases) and clinical follow-up (34 benign and malignant cases): 18 extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, 17 intrahepatic/hilar cholangiocarcinoma (intra/H-CC), eight other malignant disease, and 14 benign biliary disease...

OBJECTIVE: No universally accepted classification exists for salivary gland fine-needle aspiration (FNA). The proposed Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology (MSRSGC) offers a uniform classification with management recommendations. We compared FNA diagnoses from a prior study with specific diagnoses with corresponding MSRSGC diagnoses. METHODS: One-hundred and sixty-four cases from a prior cytologic study with histologic follow-up were re-reviewed by one of the authors and assigned to one of the MSRSGC categories...

Amanda Herbert
We sadly announce the death earlier this year of Professor Dulcie V Coleman, the driving force behind the publication of Cytopathology in 1990 and pioneer of cytology in the UK and throughout Europe (Figure 1). She died peacefully in Naples, Florida on Sunday 4th February 2018 surrounded by her family including her husband of 60 years (Jack Poznansky), their four children and two of their 13 grandchildren several of whom contributed to her academic work and publications. She had moved to Florida to be nearer much of her family but returned regularly to continue her work at Imperial College...

Taralomycosis, endemic in Southeast Asia and southern China, is a potentially fatal systemic infection typically affecting human immunodeficiency virus infected or immunosuppressed patients1 . The causative pathogen, Taralomyces marneffei (formerly Penicillium marneffei), is a thermally dimorphic fungus, existing as a yeast at body temperature and a mold at 25-30°C. Respiratory involvement may arise secondary to inhalation of the fungal conidia by susceptible individuals2 . This article is protected by copyright...

We were interested to read the paper by Weigner J and colleagues published in the February 2018 issue of Cytopathology.1 The purpose of the authors was to assess the interobserver and intraobserver variability when identifying the cytological criteria which were found to have a statistically significant association with C3 within a workplace environment.1 They used kappa index and reported that the interobserver agreement was poor for all criteria except tubules which performed badly also, the intraobserver variability for the two cytologists showed that one cytologist achieved moderate intraobserver agreement for all the criteria except cohesion which was poor, whilst the second cytologist showed poor agreement for all criteria...

OBJECTIVE: To assess our practice using the recently developed standardised classification system designated The Milan System for Reporting Salivary Cytopathology (MSRSGC) and to ascertain the rates of malignancy for each category by means of a retrospective study. METHODS: All salivary gland FNA cytology samples received between 1 January 2013 and 31 December 2015 were retrospectively assigned a diagnostic category code from the MSRSGC. Cytology results were correlated with subsequent histology (where available), clinical and radiological follow up...

J Weigner
We thank Naderi and Sabour for their interest in our article.1 They question the statistical methodology we employed in our article. We would like to point out that the aim of our study was to assess inter-observer and intra-observer variability when identifying the cytological criteria which were found to have a statistically significant association with C3 within a workplace environment. Previously, we had identified and selected the most useful cytomorphological criteria topredict histological outcomes arising from the C3 reporting category...

Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) is a rare neoplasm of the accessory immune cells that can present at both nodal and extranodal sites1 . A high index of suspicion is crucial so as to include FDCS in the differential diagnosis of a spindle cell neoplasm in the appropriate clinical and morphological context. However, the morphological overlap with other tumors makes this entity a diagnostic challenge unless supplemented by other ancillary tests like immunohistochemistry and ultrastructural studies.

Proximal-type epithelioid sarcoma (PES) is a rare malignant mesenchymal tumour of unknown origin and histogenesis. The exact worldwide incidence is also not reported. Clinically, these tumours commonly present as vague masses involving the deeper soft tissues of proximal sites1 . PES has gained importance recently since it is recognized as a distinct entity with characteristic morphology, immunochemical findings and worse clinical outcomes.

OBJECTIVE: Several authors have underlined the limits of morphological analysis mostly in the diagnosis of follicular neoplasms (FN). The application of ancillary techniques (AT), including immunocytochemistry(ICC) and molecular testing (MT), contributes to a better definition of the risk of malignancy(ROM) and management of FN. According to literature, the application of models, including the evaluation of ICC, somatic mutations (i.e. BRAFV 600E ), miRNA analysis is proposed for FNs...

Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare and aggressive primary neuroendocrine tumor of the skin, with a high propensity for local, regional and distant spread1 . However, distant metastasis of MCC to the pancreas are rarely seen. EUS-FNA is an effective tool in the evaluation and differential diagnosis of pancreatic mass lesions3 . Differentiating metastatic pancreatic tumors, especially Merkel cell carcinoma, from primary pancreatic tumor will influence clinical management and therapeutic strategies2 .

REVIEW
Arrigo Capitanio, Roberto E Dina, Darren Treanor
By the last decade of the 20th Century digital imaging rapidly replaced film-based imaging in many medical fields. Radiology is certainly the most significant example of this technological change, but also in microscopy at the beginning of the current century it became difficult to find a conventional film camera in a Department of Pathology. Thanks to the constant increase of the power and speed of microcomputers, the year-by-year reduction in costs and their ease of use, digital cameras took their place on the head of the microscope replacing the conventional film camera...

BACKGROUND: The Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia Quality Assurance Programs introduced virtual microscopy cases into its cytopathology non-gynaecological program after a short pilot phase, to address the challenges of providing a purely glass slide-based external quality assurance program to multiple participants both locally and internationally. The use of whole slide image (WSI) cases has facilitated a more robust program in relation to standardised material and statistical analysis, with access to a wider variety of specimen types and diagnostic entities...
