associated with the wash-brush procedure. We estimate an extra cost of around £27 and 33 minutes of extra work per test. In comparison, a repeated diagnostic bronchoscopic procedure with histology is likely to cost somewhere between £2000 and £3000 (based on local Trust information and published private rates), without considering the potential complications of a repeat procedure. Liquid-based cytology (LBC) has already demonstrated a significant reduction in unsatisfactory tests and increased…

Fetal adenocarcinoma — a rare variant of lung adenocarcinoma with good prognosis
A case of 32-year-old male, a smoker, who had an incomplete regression of parenchymal consolidations after antibiotic treatment, which led to further diagnostics, and fetal adenocarcinoma was diagnosed, which represents approximately 0.5% of all primary lung neoplasms.


Fine needle aspiration cytology of pulmonary, well‐differentiated fetal adenocarcinoma prepared by the ThinPrep® method
This case report adds to the cytopathology of this tumour sampled by fine needle aspiration and prepared by the ThinPrep method, which is currently classified as a rare subtype of lung adenocarcinoma.
Cytological examination of the whole endobronchial brush in bronchoscopic diagnosis of lung cancer.
W whole endobronchial brush analysis has no advantage in bronchoscopic diagnosis of patients with suspected lung cancer, and whole brush analysis was the least sensitive test in detecting malignancy.
The cytology of pulmonary well‐differentiated foetal adenocarcinoma
Well-differentiated foetal adenocarcinoma (WDFA) is a rare lung tumour composed of columnar cells arranged in a glandular pattern admixed with small nests (morules) of regular ovoid cells with neuroendocrine features and yolk sac differentiation on histology is described.
Performance characteristics of different modalities for diagnosis of suspected lung cancer: summary of published evidence.
The sensitivity of bronchoscopy is high for endobronchial disease and poor for peripheral lesions that are < 2 cm in diameter, and the distinction between small cell lung cancer and non-small Cell lung cancer by cytology appears to be accurate.
Fine-needle aspiration cytology of pulmonary adenocarcinoma of fetal type: report of a case with immunohistochemical and ultrastructural studies.
The fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology of a case of adenocarcinoma resembling fetal lung in a 53-yr-old male is described, a very uncommon malignant tumor of the lung that is similar to an early stage of lung differentiation.
Well‐differentiated fetal adenocarcinoma of the lung: Cytomorphologic features on fine‐needle aspiration with emphasis on use of β‐catenin as a useful diagnostic marker
The cytomorphologic findings of a case of WDFA in a 36‐yr‐old female patient are described and the diagnostic utility of aberrant nuclear/cytoplasmic expression of β‐catenin is emphasized as an adjunct to the correct preoperative recognition of this tumor on aspiration cytology.
Fine‐needle aspiration cytology of pulmonary adenocarcinoma of fetal type: Report of a case with lmmunohistochemical and ultrastructural studies
This report describes the fine‐needle aspiration (FNA) cytology of a case of adenocarcinoma resembling fetal lung in a 53‐yr‐old male, a very uncommon malignant tumor of the lung that is similar to
A single ThinPrep® slide may not be representative in all head and neck fine needle aspirate specimens
A prospective audit of head and neck fine needle aspiration specimens processed by the ThinPrep®, method was performed to investigate whether a single ThinPrep® slide was representative forHead and neck aspirate specimens.
British Thoracic Society guidelines on diagnostic flexible bronchoscopy.
These guidelines have been developed at the request of the Standards of Care Committee of the British Thoracic Society to advise on bronchoscopy in adults, although the sections of the guidelines concerned with staV safety and instrument decontamination would also be relevant to paediatric flexible bronchoscope.
Pulmonary adenocarcinomas of the fetal lung type: a clinicopathologic study indicating differences in histology, epidemiology, and natural history of low-grade and high-grade forms.
The H-FLAC represents the prototype of so-called pulmonary blastoma predominantly seen in the elderly, whereas L- FLAC and its biphasic form predominate in the middle-aged population.
