Relevant samples were collected and subjected(More)
Tuberculosis is a major public health problem in India and other developing countries and has formed a lethal partnership with AIDS. It often presents a diagnostic challenge especially when clinical presentation is suggestive but bacteriological proof is lacking. The objective of this study was to compare the various diagnostic techniques in clinically(More)
Three cases of melanoma of the soft parts diagnosed by aspiration cytology and immunochemistry are described. Unusual clinicoradiological features, variable cytomorphology, absence of melanin, and lack of awareness due to rarity of the lesion caused diagnostic dilemma. Morphological similarity to alveolar soft part sarcoma, synovial and epithelioid sarcoma,(More)
Fine needle aspiration (FNA) plays a significant role in the diagnosis of thyroid lesions due to its simplicity and low cost. Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is the second most common thyroid lesion next to endemic goitre diagnosed on FNA in iodine (I2) deficient areas. Data on its incidence, prevalence and clinicopathological features in I2 deficient areas is(More)
BACKGROUND Epidermal inclusion cyst in the breast (EICB) is very rare. It presents as breast lump mainly in peri-areolar region and needs to be differentiated from other breast lesions with predominance of squamous cells. AIM To analyze the role of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in patients presenting with breast lump. MATERIALS AND METHODS The(More)

Post-radiation sarcomas account for 0.5–5.5% of all sarcomas; and include extra skeletal osteosarcoma, fibrosarcoma leiomyosarcoma, and malignant fibrous histiocytoma. Reports on post radiotherapy malignant fibrous histiocytoma in cervical(More)
The objective of the study was to study the cytohormonal and morphological alterations in cervicovaginal smears associated with the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and to assess the utility of vaginal cytology in determining the response to HRT. Ninety postmenopausal women (30 on estrogen-progesterone combination (HRT) for 1 to 24 mo (user 1), 30(More)
