Negative images of crystalline immunoglobulin in crystal storing histiocytosis: A potential cytologic mimic of mycobacteria in smears.

Two cases are described of crystal storing histiocytosis (CSH) associated with extranodal marginal zone lymphoma, presenting as lung and subcutaneous masses respectively. Fine-needle aspiration of subcutis and smears prepared from the resected lung masses showed negative images. Cytology slides of both cases were reviewed to identify cytomorphological… CONTINUE READING
