OBJECTIVE: Image guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a safe, simple, rapid, cost effective and accurate modality in evaluation of deep seated lumps (abdominal, pelvic and intrathoracic masses) which are unapproachable by blind FNAC. In this study, a critical analysis of the utility of image guided FNAC in deep seated and otherwise inacessible mass lesions was carried out. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Fifty-four ultrasound (USG) or computed tomography (CT) guided FNACs from lumps at any location in the body, that is, thoracic, abdominal, pelvic etc over a period of 3 years (January 2012- December 2014) were included in the study...

Human cysticercosis most commonly affects the subcutaneous tissues, skeletal muscles, lungs, brain, eyes, liver and, rarely, the heart, thyroid and pancreas. Owing to vague clinical presentation and unfamiliarity of clinicians with this entity, it is difficult to diagnosis when seen as an isolated cyst. We present a case of a 16-year-old boy who presented with an upper abdominal lump and jaundice. Ultrasonography (USG) and MRI of the abdomen were carried out, which revealed a cystic mass (8.5 × 7 × 7 cm) in the pancreas...

Primary non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the liver is a very rare malignancy. In this case report, we describe a case of primary hepatic lymphoma (PHL) in a 60-year-old man who presented with lump and pain in the abdomen of 2 months' duration. The patient had altered liver function, normal serum alfa fetoprotein level (AFP), normal hemogram and bone marrow. A computed tomography scan of the abdomen and pelvis showed an ill-defined hypodense mass with specks of calcification involving the liver, suggestive of primary malignant mass of liver...

INTRODUCTION: Bilateral Breast Carcinoma (BBC) is a rare entity with incidence of synchronous carcinoma being 2-5% of all breast malignancies, which is much less than metachronous carcinoma. Synchronicity/ metachronicity are usually associated with local and lymphatic spread and with blood-borne spread to lungs, bones and liver. Moreover BBC are mostly lobular carcinomas but we report a rare case of Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) as the primary carcinoma and Lobular Carcinoma as the secondary...

We report a 65-year-old male patient who presented with right heart failure and a large mobile right atrial and ventricular mass on echocardiography. His computed tomography demonstrated bilateral supraclavicular/mediastinal lymphadenopathy, right atrial and ventricular mass with right pulmonary artery segmental embolism, and multiple liver hypodense lesions. His tumor markers were negative. However, fine-needle aspiration cytology of supraclavicular lymph node revealed metastatic carcinoma suggestive of squamous cell carcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric hepatic mass is a heterogeneous group of benign and malignant lesions. Percutaneous fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) can be utilized as a diagnostic modality to assess the nature of radiologically demonstrated hepatic lesions and thus facilitate individualized treatment. AIMS AND OBJECTIVE: The objective of the present study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of percutaneous FNAC of pediatric liver masses, a procedure that is less invasive than open biopsy...

A prospective study was carried out during 2010 - 2012 in which a total of 194 patients underwent USG guided FNAC from lesions in deep seated thoracic and abdominal organs. These included liver, lungs, intra-abdominal lymphnodes, gall bladder, ovary and adnexa, pancreas, stomach, omentum, other mass of unknown origin in peritoneal cavity, mediastinum, kidney, colon, small intestine, pleura, appendix and adrenal gland. Of these, FNAC was diagnostic in 168 (86.7%) cases, in 15 (7.7%) cases it was not conclusive...

Hydatid cysts (echinococcosis) are caused by an infestation with larval tapeworms of the genus Echinococcus. The disease is extensively distributed worldwide, and it has been rarely reported in Korea. We describe the cytologic features of a case of hepatic hydatid cyst in a 28-year-old male. Computed tomography revealed a cystic mass in the right lobe of the liver. A right hemihepatectomy was performed. The aspirated fluid from the hepatic cystic mass was clear. The smears showed protoscolices, hooklets, and a laminated membrane...

Yolk sac tumour is the most common germ cell tumour in infants and children, with a majority of them arising in the gonads. Rare cases of extra - gonadal germ cell tumours have been described in the literature. We are presenting here, a case of a yolk sac tumour of the cryptorchid testis in a 2 year old child, who initially presented with a mass in the left lobe of the liver, with huge ascites and which posed diagnostic difficulties. The mass was diagnosed as hepatoblastoma on Computed Tomography (CT). Subsequently, CT guided Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) of the liver mass showed the features of a yolk sac tumour...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the commonest and the most frequent primary malignant tumour of the liver. Chronic hepatitis B is the most common cause of HCC. Metastatic HCC has an aggressive course and a poor outcome. Common sites of hematogenous metastasis are lungs, bones & adrenal glands. Involvement of vertebra, pelvis, rib & skull is reported but coracoid process of scapula is an extremely rare site of metastasis. Thus we are going to present an unusual site of metastasis of HCC to the tip of the coracoid process of left scapula which was presented as a nodular swelling over the lateral aspect of left shoulder...

OBJECTIVE: Appropriate clinical management of a hepatic mass depends on its accurate diagnosis. We aimed to evaluate sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of percutaneous fine needle aspiration cytopathology (FNAC) in the diagnosis of suspicious liver masses in our center. STUDY DESIGN: Cytopathology and histopathology databases were searched for patients undergoing combined, image-guided percutaneous FNAC and biopsy sampling of liver mass lesions in 2006-2011. All patients had one or more radiologically detected lesion and clinical suspicion of neoplastic disease...

BACKGROUND: Detection of portal vein tumor invasion in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is important in determining therapy and prognosis. Patients with portal vein thrombus (PVT) due to tumor are considered to have advanced disease and are only offered palliative therapy. Therefore, every possible attempt should be made to accurately differentiate benign from malignant PVT. METHODS: In this study, 20 patients presenting to the out-patient department with a PVT and a diagnosis/diagnostic suspicion of HCC were subjected to FNAC of PVT...

A 55-year-old man presented with multiple gradually progressing asymptomatic swellings on his body for the preceding 6 months. He had no personal or family history of any skin disease. There was no systemic symptom apart from occasional constipation. Examination revealed multiple discrete, firm, nontender, skin-colored nodules of varying sizes, fixed to the skin but free from the underlying structures on his chest, abdomen, and back. The overlying skin of the nodules was erythematous at places (Figure 1). A solitary depigmented, nonanesthetic patch (measuring 3 cm x 3 cm) was noted around a central gray macule (4 mm x 4 mm) on his left shin (Figure 2)...

Echinococcosis is frequently seen in an endemic country like India. The vast majority of infestations in humans are caused by Echinococcosis granulosus. The cyst is most commonly seen in the liver in about 74% of the cases, followed by pulmonary involvement in about 24% of cases. In our case report, a 25-year-old man presented with a mass-like lesion in the upper and middle lobe of the right lung. The patient had deteriorated clinically as the mass like opacity grew in size. Here, we have highlighted an uncommon presentation of hydatid disease of the lung diagnosed by video bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) as clinico-radiological examination along with FNAC (fine-needle aspiration cytology) of the lesion proved insufficient tools to make a diagnosis...
