Radiation therapy is a significant risk factor for the development of angiosarcoma. With the increase in breast conservation treatment, the incidence of cutaneous radiation-induced angiosarcoma of the breast is rising. If the angiosarcoma demonstrates epithelioid features, the tumor cells may present a diagnostic dilemma on fine-needle aspiration cytology.(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) and endoscopic ultrasound-guided core-needle biopsy (EUS-CNB) are widely used for diagnosis of pancreatic tumors. The aim of our study was to compare the diagnostic performance of ROSE EUS-FNA and EUS-CNB for diagnosis of pancreatic malignancy during the same EUS. METHODS Patients(More)
Granulosa cell tumors (GCT) of the ovary are low grade tumor with a potential ability of late pelvic recurrences and distant metastases. However, there is sparse literature on the cytopathologic features of metastatic granulosa cell tumors (MGCT). Between 2000 and 2014, eight cases of MGCT were diagnosed by FNA. Clinical, cytologic, and histopathologic(More)
Primary bladder signet-ring cell carcinoma (SRCC) is extremely rare and associated with an aggressive course. To our knowledge, we describe the first metastatic bladder SRCC identified in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). A 68-year-old male with 1 year history of primary bladder SRCC with spinal metastasis presented with multiple falls and loss of consciousness.(More)
BACKGROUND Vaginal fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is infrequently performed to assess palpable lesions. We perform the first multi-institutional study to evaluate this procedure. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed vaginal FNAs performed at two institutions for the past 27 years. Clinical, cytological and histological data were reviewed and tabulated. (More)
Bronchial brushings (BB) commonly aid in the diagnosis of primary lung cancer. However, the utility of this method in diagnosing endobronchial metastases (EBM) from extrapulmonic malignancies has not been thoroughly evaluated. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the sensitivity of BB in diagnosing EBM. An institutional database was queried for all(More)
BACKGROUND Myelomatous effusions (ME) of the serous cavities are rare. Identification of the atypical plasma cells in the body fluids may be critical for prognostic considerations. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed clinicopathologic findings of 21 serous effusion specimens from 13 cases of ME including 10 pleural, two concurrent pleural and pericardial,(More)
A 22-year-old African American man with recurrent episodes of gross hematuria for 6 months presented to the clinic for evaluation. A thorough history revealed that the patient emigrated from Mozambique to the United States 12 years ago. Urine culture was negative for a urinary tract infection. Cystoscopy revealed 4 lesions in the bladder. Biopsy of the(More)
