EUS ‐FNA of the Merkel cell carcinoma metastasis to the pancreas: Cytomorphology and immunocytochemistry on direct cytological smears

ConclusionIncreasing incidence of MCC warrants the inclusion of MCC in the differential diagnosis of tumours of small round blue cell morphology even in unusual sites. The cytomorphological features coupled with an ICC panel are usually enough to make a confident diagnosis of MCC. EUS‐FNA is a minimally invasive technique which enables sampling adequate tissue for all the ancillary methods eventually needed to support the diagnosis.

Authors: Dietz A, Wichmann G, Kuhnt T, Wiegand S Abstract Patients with locoregionally advanced laryngeal and hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (LHSCC) comprise two broad groups: those who are candidates for functional larynx preservation (LP) with avoidance of ablative surgery and those who are not. Currently, treatment depends on the patient's needs and wishes, the experience and recommendation of the surgeon, the philosophy of the institution, etc. The milestone VA trial established non-surgical LP in advanced LHSCC in the 1990s using induction chemotherapy (IC) with PF (cisplatin, P, plus 5‑fluorou...
