Neoplastic meningitis: A study from a Tertiary Care Hospital from coastal India
Conclusion: A combined diagnostic approach including biochemical, microbiological and pathological evaluation was useful in eliminating infectious meningitis and confirming neoplastic meningitis in these cases. Cytology should be performed on cerebrospinal specimens from all patients with known or suspected malignancy with meningismus. Detection of malignant cells on cytological examination of CSF is the diagnostic gold standard for neoplastic meningitis. (Source: Journal of Cytology)

Diagnostic value of S100P, IMP3, Maspin, and pVHL in the differantial diagnosis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and normal/chronic pancreatitis in fine needle aspiration biopsy
Conclusion: We observed that dual response in triple test (positive staining with two of these three markers) of maspin, IMP3, and S100P immunocytochemistry is very sensitive and specific in differential diagnosis of PDA and non-neoplastic pancreatic lesions. pVHL may have an additional role, when triple assessment is not satisfactory.

Utility of FNAC in dermatological manifestations of metastatic cancer with the review of the literature
Conclusion: FNAC is a minimally invasive method, which aides in prompt detection and appropriate management of cases presenting with skin nodules and clinically unsuspected of malignancy. Whereas in known primary tumor, it indicates dismal prognosis by diagnosing CM; in cases with unknown primaries, cytomorphology in conjunction with clinicoradiological findings often gives a clue to the possible primary site.

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)

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...
