Cytologic identification of reinke crystalloids in scrapings and imprints of fresh testicular tumors: a simple and rapid technique for intraoperative use.

Abstract

Although not required for the diagnosis, crystalloids of Reinke are pathognomonic for Leydig cell tumor. However, conventional frozen section rarely reveals their presence. A method of rapid identification of crystalloids of Reinke could improve the intraoperative diagnosis. We tested the efficacy of touch imprints and scrape smears for the identification… (More)
