Cervical melanoma is a rare neoplasm and is seldom diagnosed by cervical scrape cytology. The possibility of metastatic melanoma should be excluded before making a diagnosis of primary cervical melanoma. We present a case of primary cervical melanoma diagnosed by cervical scrape cytology and a review of literature. The patient presented with vaginal(More)
Spontaneous infarction is an uncommon complication occurring in fibroadenoma of the breast. Although infarction following fine-needle aspiration has been reported in the literature, to the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case where infarction was encountered on first-time aspiration. It is necessary to distinguish infarcted fibroadenoma(More)
Rhinosporidium seeberi causes granulomatous inflammation of mucocutaneous sites, presenting most frequently as polypoidal lesions in the nose. Sites like the conjunctiva, trachea, nasopharnyx, skin, and genitourinary tract are less frequently involved. Primary cutaneous lesion is extremely rare. We report the fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of(More)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a malignant tumor of the salivary glands. It is slow growing and is characterized by the delayed development of distant metastasis, which may develop even a decade or more after initial treatment of the primary tumor. We present the case of a 68-year-old male with complaints and radiological findings suggestive of primary(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the cytologic features of Kimura's disease and distinguish the differentiating features from those of other conditions with similar cytologic findings. STUDY DESIGN In eight cases of Kimura's disease the cytologic features were correlated with the histologic findings. RESULTS The cytologic features included a polymorphous(More)
BACKGROUND Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of jaw tumors has not been studied extensively. Ameloblastomas are jaw tumors that show a wide morphologic spectrum and thus may pose some diagnostic difficulties. Of the many types, granular cell ameloblastoma (GCA) is an uncommon variant that possesses distinctive features. To the best of our knowledge,(More)
Calcinosis cutis is characterized by the deposition of calcium salts in the subcutaneous tissues of the body. Metastatic calcifications can occur in the body in hyperparathyroidism and end-stage renal disease. Calcifications can also occur in a variety of other clinical settings and can be subjected to fine-needle aspiration (FNA). Calcinosis cutis was(More)
Glassy cell carcinoma is a poorly differentiated variant of adenosquamous carcinoma of the cervix associated with an aggressive course and a poor prognosis. We present three cases of glassy cell carcinoma of the cervix. Patients presented with a cervical growth which was biopsied. Histology the tumours showed nests of cells with a granular or clear(More)
Dyshormonogenetic goiter is a rare cause of congenital goiter occurring due to a lack of enzymes necessary for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. We present a case of dyshormonogenetic goiter diagnosed on cytology. Correlation with the history, clinical findings, levels of thyroid hormones and other investigations is imperative for the diagnosis. The degree(More)
