Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration: Techniques and challenges
Valliappan Muthu, Inderpaul Singh Sehgal, Sahajal Dhooria, Kuruswamy T Prasad, Nalini Gupta, Ashutosh N Aggarwal, Ritesh AgarwalJournal of Cytology 2019 36(1):65-70 Intrathoracic lymphadenopathy is a common problem encountered in clinical practice and is caused by a wide variety of diseases. Traditionally, the mediastinal lymph nodes were sampled using conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA), or surgical methods such as mediastinoscopy, and thoracotomy (open or video-assisted thoracoscopy). However, surgical modalities including mediastinoscopy are invasive, expensive, and not universally available. Moreover,...

Inderpaul Singh Sehgal, Ritesh Agarwal, Sahajal Dhooria, Kuruswamy Thurai Prasad, Ashutosh N AggarwalJournal of Cytology 2019 36(1):61-64 The treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) includes surgical resection with curative intent in early-stage disease and chemoradiation in the advanced stage disease. Therefore, an accurate preoperative mediastinal lymph node staging is required not only to offer the appropriate treatment but also to avoid unnecessary invasive procedures including thoracotomy. The mediastinal lymph nodes can be sampled using several techniques including mediastinoscopy, surgery (open or video-ass...

EBUS-TBNA for diagnosis of extrapulmonary lesions
Deepali JainJournal of Cytology 2019 36(1):59-60 Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) has recently emerged as a minimally invasive and safe modality for the evaluation of mediastinal lymphadenopathy, particularly in staging of lung carcinoma patients. In high tuberculosis endemic countries, EBUS-TBNA is useful in obtaining tissue diagnosis of granulomatous inflammation. Role of EBUS-TBNA in workup of extrapulmonary malignancies is not widely described. Herein, a brief overview of importance of EBUS-TBNA in investigation of extrapulmonary lesions/malignancies is presented. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

Immunocytochemistry on sputum samples predicts prognosis of lung cancer
Conclusion: This is the first report of immunocytochemistry of a panel of markers on cells exfoliated in sputum samples which suggests that analysis of immunocytochemical markers in sputum samples can be attempted as a cost-effective and reliable predictor of prognosis and survival. Accumulation of mutated p53, overexpression of galectin-3, and lower expression of p16 and EGFR proteins were found to predict poor prognosis for lung cancer. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

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...
