Cytologic changes in cervical smears associated with prolonged use of depot‐medroxyprogesterone acetate
Hormonal effects have always played a significant role in gynecologic cytology. In atrophic and postpartum smears, interpretation may be complicated by large numbers of parabasal cells with highExpand
Macrophages, inflammation and risk of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) progression--clinicopathological correlation.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the population of macrophages during the cervical malignant transformation and its influence in CIN outcome. METHODS Biopsies from 26 normal cervix, 28 low-grade (LSIL), 30Expand
Gastric stromal tumor with peritoneal nodules in pregnancy: tumor spread or rare variant of diffuse leiomyomatosis.
Gastric tumors discovered during pregnancy are rare. A cystic gastric stromal tumor with adjacent peritoneal nodules and associated with ascites was encountered in a 32-year-old pregnant patient. OnExpand
Peritoneal cytology of uncommon ovarian tumors
Peritoneal cytology has been well established as a diagnostic and staging tool in the management of the common epithelial tumors of ovary. Germ cell, mesenchymal, and sex‐cord stromal tumors are muchExpand
Primary papillary serous carcinoma of the peritoneum: CT-pathologic correlation.
We present the CT findings of three cases of primary papillary serous carcinoma of the peritoneum. All patients presented with massive ascites. CT of the abdomen and pelvis showed omental caking inExpand
Extrauterine Pelvic Serous Carcinomas: Current Update on Pathology and Cross-sectional Imaging Findings.
The spectrum of extrauterine pelvic serous carcinomas includes ovarian serous carcinoma, primary peritoneal serous carcinoma, and primary fallopian tube carcinoma. Ovarian serous carcinoma, the mostExpand
Up-regulation of VEGF, c-fms and COX-2 expression correlates with severity of cervical cancer precursor (CIN) lesions and invasive disease.
OBJECTIVES To describe the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), proto-oncogene macrophage colony-stimulating factor receptor (c-fms) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in cervicalExpand
Fine‐needle aspiration cytology of mammary adenomyoepithelioma: Report of a case with intranuclear cytoplasmic inclusions
Adenomyoepithelioma of the breast is an uncommon lesion which may recur and rarely metastasizes. We report the fine‐needle aspiration (FNA) findings in one case of mammary adenomyoepithelioma inExpand
Cytodiagnosis and comparison of nondecidualized and decidualized endometriosis of the abdominal wall. A report of two cases.
We describe two cases of endometriosis of the abdominal wall occurring in young, multiparous women in which the diagnosis was made by fine needle aspiration biopsy. One case illustrates the cytologicExpand
Cytodiagnosis of adenosquamous carcinoma of the pancreas. Use of intraoperative fine needle aspiration.
The first cytologic diagnosis of adenosquamous carcinoma of the pancreas is reported. An intraoperative fine needle aspiration of a pancreatic mass showed malignant adenocarcinoma with a significantExpand
