Cytopathology Editor's Choice
A comprehensive review by Barroca and Bom-Socesso that explains how paediatric fine needle biopsy with cytology should ideally be done is selected as Editor’s choice for February and March. The authors use a fine needle without aspiration and rapid assessment primarily for triage of the limited material for ancillary tests; they aim to achieve adequacy with a single sample to avoid additional trauma to the child and anxious parents. Although the range of childhood tumours is wide, in a particular age group and site the differential diagnosis is narrowed, and accurate diagnosis requires experience and multidisciplinary teamwork. This review and the accompanying editorial by Fassina and Klinjanienko discuss when cytology is sufficient for diagnosis and when core biopsy is needed.
