    The impact of FNAC in the management of salivary gland lesions: Institutional experiences leading to a risk-based classification scheme

    (A) A cellular specimen comprised of round-to-oval cells arranged in cohesive and branching tissue fragments (alcohol-fixed, Papanicolaou-stained smear, original magnification ×40). (B) A high-power image reveals the presence of randomly distributed cells with nuclear pleomorphism. This case was diagnosed as “atypical, malignant tumor cannot be excluded” (ThinPrep preparation, original magnification ×60). (C) Histologic follow-up showed a circumscribed tumor compatible with pleomorphic adenoma (H&E-stained section, original magnification ×20). (D) Another high-power image confirms the presence of the randomly distributed pleomorphic cells that were observed in the cytology specimen (H&E-stained section, original magnification ×60).

  • Usefulness of translocation-associated immunohistochemical stains in the fine-needle aspiration diagnosis of salivary gland neoplasms

    Usefulness of translocation-associated immunohistochemical stains in the fine-needle aspiration diagnosis of salivary gland neoplasms

    (A) Pleomorphic adenoma cell block stained by H & E (×200) (B) exhibiting strong nuclear immunoreactivity to high HMGA2 (×200).

  • Examples of staining with the napsin A (red)/p40 (brown) antibody cocktail on tumors in the non-small cell lung cancer tissue microarray. Napsin A demonstrates granular cytoplasmic staining and p40 shows nuclear staining.

    Risk of neoplasm and malignancy associated with each diagnostic category. AUS indicates atypia of undetermined significance; FN, follicular neoplasm; FNA, fine-needle aspiration.
