      Reflections on adequacy in cervical/vaginal cytology (pages 103–104)

      William J. Frable

      Version of Record online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/(SICI)1097-0142(19990625)87:3<103::AID-CNCR1>3.0.CO;2-3

      The number of endocervical/metaplastic cells required for an adequate Papanicolaou smear remains controversial. However, a validated definition of an adequate Papanicolaou smear is important because of its impact on screening results for precancerous lesions and carcinoma of the cervix.

      Increased detection of low grade squamous intraepithelial lesions, fewer cases with limited specimen adequacy, and decreased atypical diagnoses were noted with the implementation of ThinPrep® Papanicolaou testing in a university hospital. Follow-up studies for abnormal cases showed findings similar to those for conventional cervical smears.

      In a study of 56,475 Papanicolaou smears, atypia and squamous intraepithelial lesions were associated significantly with the presence of ≥ 25 endocervical cells in the specimen.

      A multicenter, retrospective review of the diagnostic yield of urinary cytology reporting in daily practice in three practice settings confirms its efficacy as the primary pathologic screening and surveillance modality for high grade urinary bladder carcinoma. Pathologists' interpretative skills are improved and diagnostic thresholds are optimized through intradepartmental quality assurance reviews.

      Angiomyolipomas that challenge the radiologist often are likewise difficult for the cytopathologist to diagnose on fine-needle aspiration.

      Chromophobe renal cell carcinoma has a prognosis intermediate between oncocytoma and clear cell renal carcinoma. Careful attention to cytoplasmic and nuclear features allows for the distinction between these two tumors in cytologic material.

      Anti-α-inhibin is a highly sensitive marker for adrenal cortical tissue. It has the potential to become the antibody of choice for the differential diagnosis of adrenocortical carcinoma versus renal cell carcinoma in cytologic material.
