BACKGROUND Difficulties with cytologic diagnoses on fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the liver can be overcome by the application of immunocytochemical panels applied on smears. The aim of the current study was to analyze the performance of a panel of monoclonal antibodies to differentiate hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from metastatic carcinoma (MC) or regenerative nodules, and to identify the to date unknown primary sites of carcinomas that had metastasized to the liver. METHODS In… CONTINUE READING
