      Classification of benign endometrial glandular cells in cervical smears from postmenopausal women (pages 60–66)

      Edi Brogi, Rosemary Tambouret and Debra A. Bell

      Version of Record online: 26 MAR 2002 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.10478

      The presence of cytologically benign endometrial cells in cervical preparations from postmenopausal women may signal underlying endometrial pathology. This finding should be reported as a glandular cell abnormality in cervical preparations from women who are receiving hormone replacement therapy and from women who are not.

      Interobserver variability : Comparison between liquid-based and conventional preparations in gynecologic cytology (pages 67–73)

      David C. Chhieng, Lynya I. Talley, Janie Roberson, Rose Marie Gatscha, Nirag C. Jhala and Paul A. Elgert

      Version of Record online: 22 MAR 2002 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.10477

      Nineteen observers reviewed 20 pairs of ThinPrep smears and conventional cervical smears. The authors demonstrated that interobserver agreement of reporting gynecologic cytology based on ThinPrep preparation was superior to the conventional method.

      The results of the current study demonstrate some comparable hormonal effects in cervical smears from patients using depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate (Depo-Provera®) (DP) and levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol (Triphasil®) that contrast with those from postmenopausal patients. The duration of DP use does not appear to affect the cervical smear maturation patterns.

      Can true papillary neoplasms of breast and their mimickers be accurately classified by cytology? (pages 92–100)

      Papillary breast neoplasms are difficult to diagnose by cytology and may be mimicked by other breast lesions such as fibroadenoma. This article discusses the diagnostic cytomorphologic features for these neoplasms. Diagnostic pitfalls and mimics are emphasized.

      Evaluation of fine-needle aspiration cytology of breast masses in males (pages 1–5)

      Pieter J. Westenend and Cees Jobse

      Version of Record online: 13 MAR 2002 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.10483

      Fine-needle aspiration cytology of the breast in males is a reliable method with a high sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value. The authors believe this diagnostic method should be used more often in the preoperative evaluation of unilateral breast masses in men age > 24 years, the group of men most at risk for breast carcinoma.

      The value of Wilms tumor susceptibility gene 1 in cytologic preparations as a marker for malignant mesothelioma (pages 105–109)

      Wilms tumor susceptibility gene 1 is a positive marker for malignant mesotheliomas in cell block preparations from body fluids and can aid in its distinction from pulmonary adenocarcinoma.

      Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma : A cytopathologic, immunocytochemical, and flow cytometric study (pages 110–116)

      The authors performed a retrospective morphologic and immunophenotypic review of 114 cytologic specimens from adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma patients. They concluded that cytologic diagnosis is possible based on morphologic criteria in conjunction with ancillary techniques such as immunocytochemistry and/or flow cytometry.

      DNA profiles and numeric histogram classifiers in nephrogenic adenoma (pages 117–122)

      DNA estimation by image cytometry of bladder irrigation specimens stresses the metaplastic character of nephrogenic adenoma and appears able to separate it from bladder lesions with increased malignant potential. Several robust numeric DNA histogram classifiers are demonstrated to be of high discriminative and prognostic value in diagnosis and follow-up of this entity.
