Vaginal smears of 21 patients with malignant ovarian tumors were examined. In 5 cases malignant cells were present: 1 mucinous cystadenocarcinoma, 2 poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas, 1 clear cell carcinoma, and 1 adenoid squamous cell carcinoma arising in a dermoid cyst. Cytomorphology of tumor cells in tissue specimens and imprint, ascites, aspirate uterine corpus, cervical canal and vaginal smears were examined.

Although there was some variability in the pattern among the tumors, areas of each exhibited a cribriform appearance characterized by small cells with sparse cytoplasm arranged around cystic gland-like lumina. Only one tumor displayed cylindromatous formations similar to those described by Billroth...
