      Fine-needle aspiration of locoregional lymph nodes provides valuable information for the initial staging and subsequent surgical management of patients with breast cancer. FNA may also be useful for the investigation of sentinel lymph nodes identified noninvasively in the near future.

      The results of the current study indicate that endoscopic brush cytology was better than biopsy for assessing tumor response after combination chemotherapy and radiation in patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma. However, both methods had low sensitivity. The authors also reviewed the diagnostic pitfalls in false-negative and false-positive cases.

      The objective of the current study was to assess the frequency of premalignant and malignant cells in sputum from patients with lung cancer and to measure the dependence of these cells on cancer stage, histologic type, tumor size, and tumor location. Among all patients with lung cancer who had produced specimens adequate for analysis, 74.6% were confirmed for the presence of malignant or premalignant cells by sputum cytology. The presence of these abnormal cells in sputum depended only moderately on disease stage, tumor size, and tumor location; it was independent from the histologic type of the tumor. We conclude that sputum cytology has an important diagnostic potential that may be better exploited through standardization and automation of specimen preparation and analysis.

      EBUS-TBNA is a relatively new modality in diagnosing mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes and peripheral lung lesions. We have studied the cytological profile and potential diagnostic pitfalls of EBUS-TBNA specimens, which contain the largest number of cases (135 consecutive cases).

      Cancer size, histotype, and cellular grade may limit the success of fine-needle aspiration cytology for screen-detected breast carcinoma (pages 491–499)

      Low-grade cancer histotype, cancer size <1 cm, and lobular and tubular histotypes limit the possibility of obtaining positive results by fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Operator experience and multidisciplinary consultation may help in overcoming these limitations, and FNAC results must be critically evaluated in light of the triple assessment.

      The cytopathology of alveolar soft part sarcoma is not unique. However, the results of the current study indicated that, when combined with clinical, radiologic, and immunohistochemical staining, a definitive diagnosis may be possible.

      The cytologic features of NUT midline carcinoma (pages 508–515)

      NUT midline carcinoma, a clinically aggressive, high-grade “translocation carcinoma,” is being increasingly recognized. Knowledge of this entity should allow for the triaging of cytology specimens for the ancillary testing required to make the diagnosis.

      Immunocytochemical expression of CK19 and CD10 was investigated in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. High expression of CD10 and CK19 was found in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.

      Cyclin D1 and D3 overexpression predicts malignant behavior in thyroid fine-needle aspirates suspicious for Hurthle cell neoplasms (pages 522–529)

      Cyclin D3 overexpression is a consistent feature of malignant Hurthle cell lesions, and alone or combined with cyclin D1, it may be useful in the cytologic workup of lesions suspicious for Hurthle cell neoplasms detected in fine-needle aspiration samples.
