Cytodiagnosis of coexistence of leukemic infiltration and extramedullary hematopoiesis in a cervical lymph node, in T cell leukemia patient
Akanksha Bothale, Kalpana Bothale, Sadhana Mahore, Trupti DongreJournal of Cytology 2018 35(3):189-192 Extramedullary hematopoiesis (EMH) is a compensatory mechanism that occurs when the marrow is unable to maintain sufficient red cell mass. EMH generally occurs in the patients with deficient bone marrow hematopoiesis secondary to either peripheral red cell destruction or marrow replacement. Although EMH is known to occur in agnogenic myeloid metaplasia with myelofibrosis, chronic myelogenous leukemia, thalassemia, and infiltrative disorders, such as lymphomas, it is rare in acute leukemias. EMH is most commonly seen in t...

Cytodiagnosis of primary thyroid lymphoma coincident with unnoticed papillary thyroid carcinoma: A case report and review of the literature
Gozde Kir, Billur Cosan Sarbay, Adnan OzpekJournal of Cytology 2018 35(3):187-189 Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is the most common type of thyroid cancer, whereas primary thyroid lymphoma is very rare. Here, we report a case in which a right-sided nodule measuring 4.3 × 2.2 cm was examined using fine-needle aspiration biopsy. This revealed abundant monomorphic non-cohesive large lymphoid cells without thyroid follicular cells, on which basis acytodiagnosis of lymphoma coincident with lymphocytic thyroiditis was made. Subsequent histologic examination revealed CD45−, CD20+, and Bcl-6 + and cytokerati...

Tru-cut/core biopsy versus FNAC: Pulmonary tumors
Deepali JainJournal of Cytology 2018 35(3):183-186 Primary lung epithelial malignancies are the most common neoplasms among all pulmonary tumors. Lung cancer (LC) is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality for which a histologic or cytologic confirmation of malignancy is required before treatment. Specimen management is an important task for pathologists in the field of LC. Biopsy and fine needle aspiration are comparable. It is desirable to have both for diagnosis and mutation testing to maximize their use for patient care. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

Trucut biopsy vs FNAC of pelvic tumors-who wins the match ?
Asaranti Kar, Bharat Satapathy, Kaumudee Pattnaik, Prafulla K DashJournal of Cytology 2018 35(3):179-182 Preoperative pathologic diagnosis of pelvic tumors is mandatory for proper management of patients like neoadjuvant chemotherapy and interval debulking. Currently there are many minimally invasive methods available which include fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and trucut biopsy, mostly complimentary to each other. FNAC is a cheap, rapid and sensitive method for diagnosis of pelvic tumors. It can be done as an outpatient procedure without complications. But with it, the tissue architecture cannot be seen.

Where to look for AFB in FNA Smears from tuberculous lymph nodes
Dev PrasoonJournal of Cytology 2018 35(3):170-172 Demonstration of acid fast bacilli (AFB) is essential for the definitive cytodiagnosis of tuberculosis. However, it is not seen in all cases of tuberculosis, being more commonly observed in necrotic lesions. Tuberculosis shows a spectrum of lesions that form a continuum extending from good immunity end with purely granulomatous lesions to poor immunity end with purely necrotic lesions. Each stage has distinctive microscopic picture and determines the chance of finding AFB. AFB yield was the highest (92.7%) in necrotic lesions containing eosinophilic structures (ES). (S...

We report here an unusual case of retinoblastoma in a 55-year-old adult female who presented to us with an orbital mass at a late stage of the disease. Detailed laboratory investigations and imaging studies could not make a precise diagnosis. The treating ophthalmologist suspected primary intraocular tumor, metastatic carcinoma, malignant melanoma, or lymphoma and referred the patient for fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Cytopathological examination of Giemsa-stained FNAC smear was consistent with that of retinoblastoma and established the diagnosis. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

Utility of cytospin and cell block technology in evaluation of body fluids and urine samples: A comparative study
Conclusions: Cytospin technology is a quick, efficient, and cost-effective method of increasing cell yield in hypocellular samples, with better preservation of cell morphology. Cell blocks are better prepared from high cellularity fluids; however, tissue architecture is better studied, with improved rate of diagnosis and decrease in ambiguous results. Numerous sections can be prepared from a small amount of material. Special stains and immunochemical stains can be easily applied to cell blocks. It also provides a source of archival material.
