All cell block specimens from pancreatic fine-needle aspirations (FNAs) obtained between January 1, 2002, and June 30, 2003, were reviewed for foamy gland adenocarcinoma (FGA). All smears from these cases were reviewed for cytologic features, including those previously noted in conventional pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Fifty-two cell block specimens showed adenocarcinoma. Of these, 12 (23%) showed histologic features of FGA. This pattern predominated in 6 cases and was present focally in 6 cases… 
Foamy gland changes in gastric-type endocervical neoplasia.
TLDR
The morphological spectrum exhibited by gastric-type endocervical lesions and the range of anatomical sites in which neoplasms with FG features may be encountered is expanded.
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.
Foamy gland pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma diagnosed on EUS‐FNA: A histochemical, immunohistochemical, and molecular report
TLDR
A case of PDA with FGP, that was suspected on Diff Quik smears, diagnosed on cell‐block preparation and confirmed by ancillary stains and molecular techniques, is here reported.
Cytomorphologic Features of Gastric-Type Endocervical Adenocarcinoma in Liquid-Based Preparations
TLDR
Glandular cell nuclear area normalized to neutrophils was found to be significantly increased in GAS compared to benign endocervical cells, and awareness of the tumor type and its cytomorphology is critical for early detection.
The Role of Cytology
TLDR
The use of immunohistochemistry is outlined in the differential diagnosis of pancreatic endocrine neoplasms, acinar cell carcinoma, and solid-pseudopapillary neoplasm, and secondary involvement of the pancreas by malignancy is also discussed.
Solid Serous Adenoma of the Pancreas: Clinicopathologic Features and Differential Diagnosis
TLDR
The clinical, radiologic, and pathologic features, as well as the differential diagnosis, of pancreatic solid serous adenomas are discussed, including primary ductal adenocarcinoma with clear cell or foamy gland change, well-differentiated pancreatic endocrine neoplasm with clearcell features, and metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma, PEComa.
The Role of
TLDR
The diagnostic approach, cytomorphological features, differential diagnosis, and appropriate ancillary tests are discussed in this chapter and multiple tables and figures are used to illustrate the key diagnostic features and include practical tips to avoid pitfalls.
Pitfalls in Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration and How to Avoid Them
TLDR
This work discusses the diagnosis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma and of other pancreatic epithelioid tumors including pancreatic endocrine neoplasms, solid pseudopapillary tumors, and acinar cell carcinomas and the interpretation of lymph node aspirates.
Pathology: Premalignant and Malignant Diseases and Molecular Genetics
TLDR
The pathology chapter covers the surgical pathology and cytology of normal pancreas, as well as premalignant and malignant pancreatic processes, and molecular genetics of the following entities are discussed and compared.
Retroperitoneal Tumor: A Silent Trespasser – Role of Image-Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology with Histopathological Correlation in Early Diagnosis
TLDR
Image-guided FNAC is highly sensitive and specific for early diagnosis of an otherwise silent retroperitoneal mass and saves patient from meticulous surgical procedures for diagnostic reasons and allows more rational planning of management.

Foamy gland pattern of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma: a deceptively benign-appearing variant.
TLDR
Foamy gland pattern of invasive pancreatic ductal carcinoma with prominent microvesicular cytoplasm is morphologically distinctive and is prone to misdiagnosis as a benign process.
Fine-needle aspiration biopsy of pleomorphic (giant cell) carcinoma of the pancreas. Cytologic, immunocytochemical, and ultrastructural findings.
TLDR
Four cases of pleomorphic (giant cell) carcinoma of the pancreas, diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration biopsy, are presented, and immunocytochemical studies suggest that the coexpression of vimentin and cytokeratin within the cells is consistent with a pleomorphic malignancy of epithelial origin.
Intraductal papillary-mucinous neoplasm of the pancreas. The findings and limitations of cytologic samples obtained by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration.
TLDR
Aspirates from 13 lesions were acellular or sparsely cellular, but entrapped single or loosely cohesive neoplastic cells were identified in 16 cases, and Goblet cell morphologic features were common, but papillary clusters and dysplastic changes were infrequent.
"Osteoclastic" giant cell carcinoma of the pancreas. Report of a case with aspiration cytology.
TLDR
Multinucleate giant cells can be seen in pancreatic abscesses, fat necrosis, pseudocysts, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis and fungal infections.
Pancreatic adenocarcinoma: Regression analysis to identify improved cytologic criteria
TLDR
This study retrospectively reviewed a series of pancreatic FNABs and identifed anisonucleosis, large nuclei, and nuclear molding as the significant cytologic features for diagnosing pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
FNAC Guided by Computed Tomography in the Diagnosis of Primary Pancreatic Adenosquamous Carcinoma
TLDR
FNAC is an accurate, rapid and sensitive tool in the diagnosis of ASqC of the pancreas and is recommended for a careful search for both malignant components.
Colloid (Mucinous Noncystic) Carcinoma of the Pancreas
TLDR
Pancreatic CC of the pancreas is associated with a significantly better prognosis than ordinary ductal adenocarcinoma and appears to have a low incidence of mutation in codon 12 of the k-ras gene, which may contribute to thromboembolic complications or even dissemination of the tumor.
Fine needle aspiration of the pancreas. In quest of accuracy.
TLDR
The sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma were 100%, and Objective application of these criteria improved the diagnostic sensitivity to 90%.
Intraoperative fine needle aspiration cytology of pancreatic lesions. A study of 90 cases.
TLDR
Intraoperative FNA of the pancreas is a safe and highly accurate diagnostic method for pancreatic lesions at laparotomy, and diagnostic accuracy for intraoperative FNAC results were 80%, 100, 100%, 100%, 70% and 91%, respectively.
Atypical squamous epithelium in cytologic specimens from the pancreas: Cytological differential diagnosis and clinical implications
TLDR
Findings are reported in a series of nine cases where cytology disclosed atypical squamous epithelium in the aspirates derived from pancreatic lesions where cytologic evaluation aided in separating primary pancreatic carcinomas with squamous differentiation from metastatic lesions.
