A 59-year-old male presented to our institution with progressive shortness of breath of a few weeks duration. Two years previously, he had undergone liver transplantation for end stage liver disease secondary to cirrhosis caused by hepatitis C and alcohol abuse, complicated by a 4.9 3 4.4 cm hepatocellular carcinoma. Imaging studies, performed as part of the evaluation for re-transplantation due to progressive worsening of his liver function, revealed bilateral pleural-based nodules and…

Hyaline globules and papillary fragments in cytologic smears from two intra‐abdominal tumors (ovarian and hepatic) in female patients: A diagnostic pitfall with histologic correlation
TLDR
A detailed study and careful interpretation of the cytological, histological and immunohistochemical findings may be worthwhile to avoid a potential misdiagnosis, particularly in the cytologic specimens of the ovarian and/or intra‐abdominal mass, when involving young females.
“Intermediate filament buttons” in a fine‐needle aspirate of merkel cell carcinoma
TLDR
A 73-year-old woman underwent fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy of a painful right buttock nodule, thought to be an abscess, which had been present for six months, showing an abnormal cell population lacking lymphoid and myeloid markers.
Cytologic features of pancreatic adenocarcinoma with “vacuolated cell pattern.” report of a case diagnosed by endoscopic ultrasound‐guided fine‐needle aspiration
TLDR
The endoscopic ultrasound‐guided fine‐needle aspiration (EUS‐FNA) cytologic features of a case of pancreatic adenocarcinoma with “vacuolated cell pattern” occurring in a 60‐year‐old man allowing its differentiation from primary and metastatic signet‐ring cell carcinomas are reported.
Diagnostic utility of arborizing stromal meshwork fragments in mucinous tumors
TLDR
The aim was to retrospectively review cytology cases with mucinous material to determine the utility of ASMFs in diagnosing mucinous tumors.

Hyaline globules in renal cell carcinoma and hepatocellular carcinoma. A clue or a diagnostic pitfall on fine-needle aspiration?
TLDR
While HGs are seen more commonly in HCC than in RCC, their presence in an adenocarcinoma should bring renal origin into consideration, and the presence of HGs in metastatic granular RCC can lead to misinterpretation as primary HCC.
p62+ Hyaline inclusions in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma associated with viral hepatitis or alcoholic liver disease.
TLDR
It is suggested that intracytoplasmic hyaline bodies occasionally can be found in cholangiocarcinoma with chronic liver disease related to viral hepatitis or alcoholic intake, both of which are positive for p62 and ubiquitin.
Hyaline Globules in Neuroendocrine and Solid-pseudopapillary Neoplasms of the Pancreas: A Clue to the Diagnosis
TLDR
It is concluded that the presence of hyaline globules should raise SPNs in the differential diagnosis of a solid cellular neoplasm of the pancreas, but this should not be used as the sole criterion in the diagnosis of SPNs, as hyaline Globules may also be seen in 5% of PanNETs.
Fine‐needle aspiration in hepatocellular carcinoma. Combined cytologic and histologic approach
TLDR
More attention should be paid to the sinusoidal stroma for diagnosis of HCC in FNA; cell blocks should be more widely utilized to this effect; cytologic patterns could be classified according to the WHO histologic classification.
A step‐wise logistic regression analysis of hepatocellular carcinoma an aspiration biopsy study
TLDR
The statistical analysis selected polygonal cells with centrally placed nuclei, malignant cells separated by sinusoidal capillaries, and bile as the key cytologic criteria for hepatocellular carcinoma.
Intracytoplasmic hyaline globules in hepatocellular carcinomas
TLDR
Intracytoplasmic hyaline globules were found in 16 out of 105 hepatocellular carcinomas (15.2%) and their role in carcinogenesis and prognosis is uncertain.
"Thanatosomes": a unifying morphogenetic concept for tumor hyaline globules related to apoptosis.
TLDR
HG reflect stages of cell injury, which in most instances relate to apoptotic cell death, and are specifically associated with the cytoplasmic blebbing and condensation typically seen in this form of cell death.
Are the Mallory bodies and intracellular hyaline bodies in neoplastic and non‐neoplastic hepatocytes related?
TLDR
Light microscopic, electron microscopic and immunohistochemical data suggest a close pathogenetic relationship between MBs and IHBs, which have hitherto only been described in hepatocellular carcinomas.

TLDR
This editorial comments on the larger theme that this case exemplifies, i.e., that of cytoplasmic accumulations of one type or another that result in distinctive morphologic appearances that correlate pretty closely with the nature of the material being accumulated.
