The Paris system for reporting urinary cytology
Chapter 1 Pathogenesis of Urothelial Carcinoma Eva M. Wojcik and Stefan E. Pambuccian Chapter 2 Adequacy of Urine Specimens (Adequacy) Matthew T. Olson (Chair), Guliz A. Barkan, MoniqueExpand
The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology: The Quest to Develop a Standardized Terminology
The essential elements of TPS are outlined and the process that led to the formation and rationale of the reporting system are outlined, which is the first international/inclusive attempt at standardizing urinary cytology. Expand
Sources of diagnostic error in fine needle aspiration of the thyroid
With adequate sampling, the finding of 100% sensitivity in the diagnosis of malignant neoplasms by FNA cytology reaffirms its role as the procedure of choice in the initial screening of thyroid nodules. Expand
Mullerianosis of the urinary bladder: Report of a case with diagnosis suggested in urine cytology and review of literature
A case of mullerianosis of the urinary bladder in a 28‐year‐old nulliparous woman with no history of pelvic surgery or endometriosis is reported and differential diagnosis of endometrial‐like cells in the urine has been discussed. Expand
The accuracy of combined cytopathologic and flow cytometric analysis of fine-needle aspirates of lymph nodes.
A combination of flow cytometry and cytomorphology of cells obtained by FNA of lymph nodes can distinguish between benign and malignant lymphoid infiltrates and support a diagnosis of lymphoma that permits definitive therapy in most cases. Expand
Improved risk stratification for patients with high‐grade urothelial carcinoma following application of the Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology
The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology requires 4 cytomorphologic criteria for a definitive diagnosis of high‐grade urothelial carcinoma (HGUC) in urinary tract cytology (UTC) specimens, but malignant UTC specimens often contain degenerative changes, and this limits the number of malignant cells meeting all 4 TPS cytomorphic criteria. Expand
Fine Needle Aspiration of Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors
FNA can be used to diagnose GISTs as spindle cell and epithelioid types, but cytomorphology alone cannot beused to assess malignant potential. Expand
Clinical utility of atypical glandular cells (AGC) classification: cytohistologic comparison and relationship to HPV results.
Comparison of liquid-based and conventional Pap tests revealed a significant difference in the detection of glandular and squamous lesions and HPV testing may prove beneficial to triage AGC patients with negative colposcopic findings and positive HPV results. Expand
The Johns Hopkins Hospital template for urologic cytology samples
Urine cytology represents a major portion of testing volume in many cytopathology laboratories and is a major source of funding for drug discovery and development. Expand
