von Hansemann cells from fresh urine sediment samples in the diagnosis of malakoplakia
Conclusions: Finding of von Hansemann cells in fresh urine sediment of patients with cystitis and a history of resistance to antibiotic scan leads to the diagnosis of malakoplakia. Giemsa stain can show in some cases the characteristic central core of Michaelis-Gutmann bodies. Malakoplakia is probably the result of an acquired defect in macrophage function causing impairment of bactericidal activity. A correct diagnosis is important because the spread to ureters with bilateral stenosis and obstruction can lead to kidney failure. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

Cytological correlates of axillary nodal involvement in invasive ductal carcinoma of breast
Conclusion: Robinson's cytologic grade of breast carcinoma correlates well with the presence of axillary lymph node metastasis and hence can be used as a prognostic tool. As there is an increasing trend toward conservative approach to management of breast carcinoma, patients receive preoperative neoadjuvant therapy which may alter the nodal status on the resected specimen. Hence, a high cytological grade of primary tumor, as assessed on FNAC before initiation of therapy, should alert the treating team of the possibility of axillary lymph nodal metastasis.

Unfortunately, most patients of LC present at the advanced stage of the disease with a poor prognosis and 1-year survival of less than 20%. At the advanced stage of the disease, surgical resection cannot be possible, hence small biopsy or cytology specimens remain a choice for their correct diagnosis.

Image-guided fine needle aspiration cytology of intrathoracic lesions
Conclusion: Image-guided TTFNAC of intrathoracic lesions is a safe method when done by well-trained medical personnel with lesser rate of complications. An early accurate diagnosis of malignancy can be made based on the cytological features; however, further subtyping of the malignancy may sometimes be difficult due to overlapping cytological features. TTFNAC can be a diagnostic tool for identifying nonneoplastic lesion such as TB. Hence, image-guided FNAC aids in early diagnosis and management of patients with intrathoracic lesions.
