      Hürthle cell carcinoma: Time for a drastic change? (pages 259–260)

      Lambert Skoog and Edneia Tani

      Article first published online: 30 JUL 2002 | DOI: 10.1002/cncr.10796

      In his article, Dr. Renshaw suggests that the time has come for a drastic change in the cytologic policy toward Hürthle cell tumors. Such a change would be a distinct landmark in the diagnostic specificity of fine-needle aspiration cytology.

      Hepatoblastoma (HBL) is a rare malignant tumor that causes early peritoneal and mesenteric metastases, resulting in positive effusions on cytology. The authors reviewed six serous cavity fluid specimens from four patients with HBL to determine cytomorphologic features that may be helpful in the diagnosis of this tumor.

      Quantitative examination of mechanophysical tumor cell enrichment in fine-needle aspiration specimens (pages 275–279)

      As the purification of nucleic acids from biopsy specimens becomes increasingly important, methods for the enrichment of tumor cells over other cell types have evolved. The current study quantifies a traditional but underappreciated method of enrichment, fine-needle aspiration.

      This article describes five patients with pure mucinous carcinoma of the breast with diffuse micropapillary architecture. The fine-needle aspiration cytology and histologic features, including immunohistochemical and ultrastructural findings, of this previously unrecognized micropapillary variant are distinctive enough to warrant special attention.

      Thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF-1) is a highly specific marker for adenocarcinomas of lung origin in body cavity fluids. Immunocytochemistry for TTF-1 can be performed easily on archival Papanicolaou-stained slides.

      Invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast is a heterogeneous collection of divergent types of carcinomas. This study describes a distinctive subset recognized through cytomorphologic examination of breast carcinoma specimen obtained by fine-needle aspiration biopsies (FNAB). Identification of this subset is further established by analyses of its clinical and immunologic characteristics.

      DNA fragmentation and cell proliferation correlated with tumor grade in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (pages 301–305)

      Alexandra Kalogeraki, Francesco Garbagnati, Mario Santinami and Odysseas Zoras

      The authors analyzed both apoptosis and cell proliferation in cytologic specimens (fine-needle aspiration biopsies) from patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The findings indicated that HCC tumors with higher rates of proliferative activity and apoptosis have a higher degree of biologic aggressiveness, and patients with these aggressive tumors have a poorer prognosis.

      A fluorescence in situ hybridization-based assay for improved detection of lung cancer cells in bronchial washing specimens (pages 306–315)

      Irina A. Sokolova, Lukas Bubendorf, Anna O'Hare, Mona S. Legator, Kris K.B. Jacobson, Bruno Grilli B.S., Peter Dalquen, Kevin C. Halling, Michael Tamm, Steven A. Seelig and Larry E. Morrison

      Using a fluorescence in situ hybridization assay (FISH), genetic changes can be detected successfully in malignant cells recovered from the bronchial washing specimens of lung carcinoma patients. This finding indicates a potential utility of the FISH assay as an adjunct to bronchial washing cytology in routine clinical practice.
