      SpinThin, a simple, inexpensive technique for preparation of thin-layer cervical cytology from liquid-based specimens : Data on 791 cases (pages 135–142)

      Walid E. Khalbuss, Dorota Rudomina, Noah D. Kauff, Linus Chuang and Myron R. Melamed

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<135::AID-CNCR1>3.0.CO;2-L

      A simplified, inexpensive technique for preparation of liquid-based cervical cytology samples is described and evaluated. Diagnostic findings for 791 cervical cytology specimens from 2 groups of high risk patients correlated well with conventional cytology and biopsy results.

      Association between initial diagnostic procedure and hysteroscopy and abnormal peritoneal washings in patients with endometrial carcinoma (pages 143–147)

      Mai Gu, Weiji Shi, Jiaoti Huang, Richard R. Barakat, Howard T. Thaler and Patricia E. Saigo

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<143::AID-CNCR2>3.0.CO;2-H

      In the current study neither the type of initial diagnostic procedure nor hysteroscopy was found to be associated with an increase in the incidence rate of positive peritoneal washings.

      A review of cytologic findings in neuroendocrine carcinomas including carcinoid tumors with histologic correlation (pages 148–161)

      Siobhan A. Nicholson and Mitchell R. Ryan

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<148::AID-CNCR3>3.0.CO;2-9

      In this article the authors review the cytologic features of archival neuroendocrine carcinomas, highlight the problems in diagnosis, and discuss features that aid in the recognition of neuroendocrine differentiation.

      Aspiration biopsy and the clinical management of patients with malignant melanoma and palpable regional lymph nodes (pages 162–166)

      Joan Cangiarella, W. Fraser Symmans, Richard L. Shapiro, Daniel F. Roses, Jean-Marc Cohen, David Chhieng, Matthew N. Harris and Jerry Waisman

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<162::AID-CNCR4>3.0.CO;2-6

      One hundred fifteen patients with malignant melanoma underwent fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of a palpable, clinically suspicious lymph node. FNAB appears to provide a rapid and accurate assessment of lymph node status in these patients.

      The value of fine-needle aspiration biopsy in the differential diagnosis of adult myxoid sarcoma (pages 167–177)

      Scott E. Kilpatrick, William G. Ward and Gary D. Bos

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<167::AID-CNCR5>3.0.CO;2-Z

      Fine-needle aspiration biopsy represents a valuable diagnostic tool for the differential diagnosis of adult myxoid sarcoma, especially myxoid chondrosarcoma and lower grade examples of myxoid liposarcoma and myxofibrosarcoma. Due to its prognostic and therapeutic significance, recognition of a predominant round cell component in myxoid liposarcoma is essential.

      The role of fine-needle aspiration biopsy in the primary diagnosis of mesenchymal lesions : A community hospital–based experience (pages 178–185)

      Anirban Maitra, Raheela Ashfaq, M. Hossein Saboorian, Guy Lindberg and S. Tunc Gokaslan

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<178::AID-CNCR6>3.0.CO;2-S

      This study demonstrates the value of fine-needle aspiration for initial workup of mesenchymal lesions. Based on high accuracy and sensitivity, fine-needle aspiration provides valuable and reliable information to the clinician.

      Ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology in the early detection of melanoma metastases (pages 186–193)

      Christiane Voit, Thomas Mayer, Thomas M. Proebstle, Lutz Weber, Martina Kron, Martin Krupienski, Ulrich Zeelen, Wolfram Sterry and Alfred Schoengen

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<186::AID-CNCR7>3.0.CO;2-O

      Fine-needle aspiration cytology is a powerful and highly sensitive method free of complications for detection and verification of even small melanoma metastases, especially when used in combination with ultrasound. It therefore might be able to improve patients' prognoses.

      Calretinin staining pattern aids in the differentiation of mesothelioma from adenocarcinoma in serous effusions (pages 194–200)

      David C. Chhieng, Herman Yee, Dawn Schaefer, Joan F. Cangiarella, Jaishree Jagirdar, Luis A. Chiriboga and Jean-Marc Cohen

      Article first published online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20000625)90:3<194::AID-CNCR8>3.0.CO;2-K

      Calretinin is a specific marker for mesothelial cells and is useful in differentiating between epithelial mesothelioma and adenocarcinoma in cytologic preparations. The “fried-egg” appearance or cytoplasmic and nuclear pattern is characteristic of cells of mesothelial origin.
