    1. Intraoperative consultation on pediatric central nervous system tumors by squash cytology (pages 331–346)

      César R. Lacruz, Inmaculada Catalina-Fernández, Ricardo H. Bardales, José Pimentel, Dolores López-Presa and Javier Sáenz-Santamaría

      Article first published online: 12 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21537

      In pediatric central nervous system tumors, squash cytology improves the diagnostic accuracy and protects tissue from freezing artifacts; its use is recommended in every case. A Romanowsky-stained preparation provides valuable information about the background features of the examined lesion and complements conventional hematoxylin and eosin and Papanicolaou staining methods.

    1. Solid tumor metastases to the pancreas diagnosed by FNA: A single-institution experience and review of the literature (pages 347–355)

      Amber L. Smith, Shelley I. Odronic, Bridgette S. Springer and Jordan P. Reynolds

      Article first published online: 30 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21541

      Metastases to the pancreas may be successfully diagnosed with fine-needle aspiration. This article highlights a single-institution experience with 22 solid tumors metastasizing to the pancreas and provides a review of the literature.

      Molecular analysis of residual ThinPrep material from thyroid FNAs increases diagnostic sensitivity (pages 356–361)

      Jeffrey F. Krane, Edmund S. Cibas, Erik K. Alexander, Ralf Paschke and Markus Eszlinger

      Article first published online: 29 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21546

      Molecular analysis is feasible on residual ThinPrep fine-needle aspiration material of the thyroid with the advantage of not requiring the performance of additional fine-needle aspiration procedures. The usefulness of BRAF testing is limited by the low rate of BRAF mutations noted outside of the categories of “malignant” and “suspicious for malignancy.”

    3. Rapid on-site evaluation of EBUS-TBNA specimens of lymph nodes: Comparative analysis and recommendations for standardization (pages 362–372)

      Susanne K. Jeffus, Amy K. Joiner, Eric R. Siegel, Nicole A. Massoll, Nikhil Meena, Chien Chen, Steven R. Post and Thaddeus Bartter

      Article first published online: 30 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21555

      There has been no widespread adoption of standardized criteria for rapid on-site evaluation reporting of specimens from endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration. This study compares 2 published on-site adequacy schemes with an unstructured system currently used at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and it proposes modifications with the goal of moving toward a uniform intra- and inter-institutional system for rapid on-site evaluation reporting of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration.

    4. Prospective evaluation of p16/Ki-67 dual-stained cytology for managing women with abnormal Papanicolaou cytology: PALMS study results (pages 373–381)

      Christine Bergeron, Hans Ikenberg, Mario Sideri, Karin Denton, Johannes Bogers, Dietmar Schmidt, Francisco Alameda, Thomas Keller, Susanne Rehm, Ruediger Ridder and for the PALMS Study Group

      Article first published online: 17 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21542

      Women with Papanicolaou cytology results of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance or low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion can be efficiently triaged using p16/Ki-67 dual-stained cytology. The results of this current large, prospective, pan-European screening trial (Primary ASC-US LSIL Marker Study [PALMS]) confirm the high positivity of dual-stained cytology for disease prediction, which may reduce the number of unnecessary colposcopy referrals.
