Pleural fluid cytology of Hodgkin's disease: cytomorphologic features and the value of immunohistochemical studies.

Abstract

Two cases in which Hodgkin's disease (HD) was cytologically diagnosed in pleural effusions are presented. The presence of Reed-Sternberg (R-S) cells was confirmed by positive staining for both CD15 and CD30, and negative staining for leukocyte common antigen.
