  • Round cell sarcoma with CIC-DUX4 gene fusion: Discussion of the distinctive cytomorphologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular features in the differential diagnosis of round cell tumors

    Round cell sarcoma with CIC-DUX4 gene fusion: Discussion of the distinctive cytomorphologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular features in the differential diagnosis of round cell tumors

    (A) Within cohesive groups, cells appeared somewhat syncytial and demonstrated occasional nuclear molding (H & E stain on alcohol-fixed smear preparation [case 1]). (B) Traversing vessels were occasionally present within groups (Diff-Quik stain on air-dried smear preparation [case 2]).

  • Role of gene expression profiling in defining indeterminate thyroid nodules in addition to BRAF analysis

    Role of gene expression profiling in defining indeterminate thyroid nodules in addition to BRAF analysis

    (A) Papanicolaou-stained slide of a TIR3 fine-needle aspiration sample, (B) corresponding histological H & E–stained section (C) Papanicolaou-stained slide of a TIR3 fine-needle aspiration sample, and (D) corresponding histological H & E–stained section.

  • Monocentric study of bile aspiration associated with biliary brushing performed during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in 239 patients with symptomatic biliary stricture

    Monocentric study of bile aspiration associated with biliary brushing performed during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in 239 patients with symptomatic biliary stricture

    This representative sample reveals the high cellularity of the bile. Two cell populations are present: the benign biliary epithelium and the adenocarcinoma at the periphery.

  • Using “residual” FNA rinse and body fluid specimens for next-generation sequencing: An institutional experience

    Using “residual” FNA rinse and body fluid specimens for next-generation sequencing: An institutional experience

    (A) ThinPrep lymph node fine-needle aspirate from a patient with lung adenocarcinoma (B) Cell block from the same patient demonstrating a similar percentage of carcinoma cells. Staining with (C) cytokeratin 7 and (D) thyroid transcription factor-1 highlights the carcinoma cells and facilitates the evaluation of specimen cellularity.
