      Cell block preparation by inverted filter sedimentation is useful in the differential diagnosis of atypical glandular cells of undetermined significance in ThinPrep specimens (pages 265–272)

      Luis A. Diaz-Rosario and Salim E. Kabawat

      In the current study a ThinPrep sample was subjected to sedimentation in the inverted ThinPrep filter cylinder and processed for histology cell block. Remarkable conservation of tissue architecture was noted on the histology slides that were produced.

      Can CD34 discriminate between benign and malignant hepatocytic lesions in fine-needle aspirates and thin core biopsies? (pages 273–278)

      W. Bastiaan de Boer, Amanda Segal, Felicity A. Frost and Gregory F. Sterrett

      Version of Record online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20001025)90:5<273::AID-CNCR2>3.0.CO;2-M

      CD34 staining can be of value in distinguishing between benign and malignant hepatocellular lesions in cell blocks and thin core biopsies, although it provides little additional information to a reticulin stain.

      Small cell carcinoma versus other lung malignancies : Diagnosis by fine-needle aspiration cytology (pages 279–285)

      Fine-needle aspiration cytology of the lung is an accurate diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of lung malignancies and is an excellent technique for distinguishing small cell carcinoma from other malignant neoplasms.

      Fine-needle aspiration cytology of breast carcinoma with endocrine differentiation (pages 286–291)

      The cytologic diagnosis of low grade mammary carcinoma is difficult, with considerable overlapping occurring between in situ and invasive forms. Endocrine carcinoma is one of several subtypes of low grade mammary carcinoma. In the current study, the authors report the characteristic cytologic features of plasmacytoid morphology and the cytoarchitectural pattern of elaborate arborizing papillary fronds in patients with endocrine carcinoma. The authors believe that such features may assist in cytologic diagnosis.

      Soft tissue aspiration cytopathology : Diagnostic accuracy and limitations (pages 292–298)

      Paul E. Wakely Jr. and Jeffrey S. Kneisl

      Version of Record online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20001025)90:5<292::AID-CNCR5>3.0.CO;2-8

      Accurate discrimination between benign and malignant mass lesions within somatic soft tissue can be achieved in most patients biopsied by fine-needle aspiration. Pathologic subtyping of soft tissue tumors is possible in most of these cases.

      Use of E-cadherin and CD44 aids in the differentiation between reactive mesothelial cells and carcinoma cells in pelvic washings (pages 299–306)

      David C. Chhieng, Herman Yee, Joan F. Cangiarella, W. Fraser Symmans and Jean-Marc Cohen

      Version of Record online: 10 NOV 2000 | DOI: 10.1002/1097-0142(20001025)90:5<299::AID-CNCR6>3.0.CO;2-Z

      The authors examined the expression of both E-cadherin and CD44 in 35 pelvic washing specimens and concluded that both markers are useful in the differentiation between reactive mesothelial cells and metastatic adenocarcinoma cells.
