Cytopathology Editor's Choice
M. Fambrini and colleagues in Florence, in an article that is selected as Editor’s choice for April and May, suggest that endometrial cancer screening may be indicated in high-risk women now that this form of cancer is becoming increasingly common in western countries. Evidence from their own experience and the literature indicates that liquid-based cytology improves the accuracy of endometrial cytology, which is usually carried out alongside transvaginal ultrasound. Decreasing mortality from endometrial carcinoma in Japan, despite its increasing incidence, suggests early diagnosis through screening may be effective. On related topics, Toomine and colleagues in Japan stress the importance of recognising various forms of metaplasia that complicate endometrial cytology and Apostolou and colleagues in Athens usefully augment endometrial cytology with p53 and Ki-67 immunostaining.
