Melanotic neutroectodermal tumor of infancy (MNTI) is a rare, usually benign tumor commonly occurring in the maxilla. MNTIs at unusual sites like the cranium clinically mimic malignant small round cell tumors. Consequently, a correct preoperative cytologic diagnosis of MNTI at these sites helps in the surgical management of the patient. We report on a(More)
Central nervous system (CNS) involvement is extremely rare in anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). Primary ALCL of CNS on radiology is often misdiagnosed as tuberculosis. We report a fatal case of primary ALCL of CNS in a 17 year old male. He came with history of headache and left partial seizures. MRI showed a well- circumscribed lesion in the right(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic value of cytological smears of fine-needle aspirate with that of histological sections obtained by testicular biopsy in the evaluation of infertility. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 60 patients with azoospermia or severe oligospermia (sperm counts of < 5 million/mL). A detailed history was taken and the(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze fine needle aspirates from tubular adenomas of the breast and elucidate cytologic features unique to these tumors. STUDY DESIGN Fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology smears from eight tubular adenomas were reviewed, with special attention given to architectural features and individual cell characteristics. Smears were then compared(More)
BACKGROUND Adenomatoid tumor is a benign neoplasm of the male and female genital tract. The epididymis is the most common site. CASE A 25-year-old male presented with a swelling in the left side of the epididymis. Cytology showed monotonous cells arranged in sheets, cords and glandular patterns. The cell showed eccentric vesicular nuclei with fine(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the cytologic features and pitfalls in the cytodiagnosis of certain tumors of skin adnexa. STUDY DESIGN Smears from five nodular basal cell carcinomas, two chondroid syringomas and one case each of primary mucinous carcinoma, Merkel cell tumor, trichoepithelioma, pilomatrixoma and eccrine spiradenocarcinoma, all histologically(More)
Diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is not always easy on simple hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain. The diagnostic problems arise when tumor shows pseudoglandular, pleomorphic or clear cell differentiation. Various tumors markers have been described with varying sensitivity and specificity. Monoclonal antibody Hep Par 1 (OCH1E5) which is specific(More)
BACKGROUND The definitive diagnosis of gout is best established by demonstration of monosodium urate (MSU) crystals in the synovial fluid or biopsy. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of tophi can play a crucial role in diagnosis. CASES A 36-year-old chronic alcoholic male developed subcutaneous nodules on both malleoli without a history of(More)
Insulinoma is a rare pancreatic endocrine tumour characterised by hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. It is important to surgically remove this tumour as it can cause potentially lethal hypoglycemia. We report a case of insulinoma presenting with unconsciousness following repeated episodes of inability to arise from sleep and convulsions. Biochemical(More)
