Cytological diagnosis of erythema nodosum leprosum in clinically unsuspected cases: A report of two cases
We report two clinically unusual cases of ENL on fine-needle aspiration cytology. In one case, antileprosy treatment was completed 10 years back, whereas in the other case, ENL was the presenting feature of the disease. Cytological examination of swelling in both the cases showed neutrophils, lymphoid cells, clusters of foamy macrophages, histiocytes, and giant cells. Fite stain was positive, which confirmed the cytological diagnosis of ENL. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

Papillary pattern in acinic cell carcinoma of parotid gland: A potential diagnostic pitfall on FNAC
We present a case of a 45-year-old male with a painful swelling of the right parotid region. FNA smears revealed a predominant papillary architecture and focal acinar pattern. A provisional diagnosis of acinic cell carcinoma was given, which was confirmed on histopathology. Familiarity with the cytomorphologic features of acinic cell carcinoma is cardinal for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

Fine needle aspiration cytology of basal cell adenoma of parotid simulating adenoid cystic carcinoma
Subrata Pal, Palash Kr Mondal, Abhishek Sharma, Mrinal SikderJournal of Cytology 2018 35(1):55-57 Basal cell adenoma is a rare type of monomorphic salivary adenoma most commonly involving the parotid gland. Cytology of basal cell adenoma closely mimics many other benign and malignant basaloid neoplasms. Cytological features of membranous basal cell adenoma simulate adenoid cystic carcinoma in fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) smears. Here, we are presenting a rare case of cytodiagnosis of membranous basal cell adenoma of parotid gland in an elderly lady, which mimicked adenoid cystic carcinoma on FNAC. We discuss the...
