      Determinants of human papillomavirus-negative, low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions in the atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance/low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions triage study (ALTS) (pages 253–262)

      A retrospective evaluation of women with human papillomavirus (HPV)-negative low-grade squamous epithelial lesions (LSIL) in the Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance (ASCUS)/LSIL Triage Study population found no evidence to support HPV-negative LSIL as a distinct entity related to risk for the development of cervical carcinoma. HPV-negative LSIL appeared to represent either cytologic misinterpretations or falsely negative HPV tests.

      Results of multiple-slide, blinded review of Papanicolaou slides in the context of litigation : Determining what can be detected regularly and reliably (pages 263–269)

      Andrew A. Renshaw, E. Blair Holladay and Karen B. Geils

      Various cytology and pathology organizations have endorsed multiple-slide, blinded review as the most appropriate method for reviewing cervicovaginal specimens in the context of litigation. In the current study, the authors reviewed the results of the blinded review program at the Center for Cytopathology and Molecular Research at the Medical University of South Carolina between 1998–2004.

      Screening for cervical carcinoma : Participation and results for ethnic groups and socioeconomic status (pages 270–276)

      In the Dutch National Screening Program for cervical carcinoma, screening was less effective in women who were not born in The Netherlands and in women with lower socioeconomic status. Abnormal smears (low-grade and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions) were found more often in these subpopulations. The prevalence of high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions was higher in women who originated in The Netherlands Antilles.

      Intraoperative bile cytology of the dysplasia–carcinoma in situ sequence of gallbladder carcinoma (pages 277–281)

      Intraoperative cytologic examination of bile samples taken from 40 patients with gallbladder disease detected 3 clinically unsuspected carcinoma in situ and early invasive carcinoma cases. Because laparoscopic cholecystectomy is contraindicated in patients with carcinoma of the gallbladder, intraoperative bile cytology may help in surgical decision making.

      Combined use of imaging and cytologic grading schemes for screen-detected breast abnormalities improves overall diagnostic accuracy (pages 282–288)

      In the setting of a large, well established, accredited, population-based screening program for breast carcinoma, the authors assessed the simultaneous use of both imaging and cytologic numeric grading schemes and evaluated the effect of their integration on diagnostic accuracy. Their hypothesis was that this approach would improve the overall accuracy of assessment.

      Cytologic features and diagnostic pitfalls of primary ampullary tumors by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (pages 289–297)

      Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy is effective, accurate, sensitive, and specific in the diagnosis of suspected primary ampullary mass lesions. Sampling errors most likely occurred in nonmass-forming tumors. Adenoma still remains a diagnostic challenge and endosonographic correlation is crucial to increase the diagnostic accuracy.

      Fine-needle aspiration cytology of intraductal papillary mucinous tumors of the pancreas (pages 298–303)

      Preoperative identification of intraductal papillary mucinous tumors is essential for correct management. The cytopathologist should be aware of the wide range of cytologic appearances of this entity in fine-needle aspiration biopsy specimens so as to be able to provide a clinically useful orientation.

      Hepatocyte paraffin 1 immunoexpression in esophageal brush samples : A sensitive marker for barrett esophagus with intestinal metaplasia (pages 304–309)

      Intestinal metaplasia in Barrett esophagus often is difficult to characterize on cytopathology of esophageal brushings. Positive immunostaining with hepatocyte paraffin 1 may support a morphologic interpretation in such patients and proved to be a diagnostically useful adjunct.

      A series of seven cases illustrate the role of fine-needle aspiration biopsy in the diagnosis of Burkitt lymphoma, emphasizing integration of morphologic, immunophenotypic (flow, immunohistochemistry), and molecular-cytogenetic (fluorescence in situ hybridization) data.
