A cytological diagnosis
of spindle cell lesion of neural origin with the closest resemblance of ectopic meningioma was rendered.
Two cases diagnosed cytologicaly as benign follicular cells while histopathological diagnosis revealed Follicular carcinoma as a result cytological diagnosis
of follicular adenoma vs.
Tissue sampling in the form of EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration can also provide a cytological diagnosis
and important staging information in pancreaticobiliary malignancies.
Ultrasonography guided needle aspiration yielded a cytological diagnosis
of the hematoma.
In a previous retrospective study (15), our group showed that K-ras mutation analysis in paraffin-embedded FNA samples from pancreatic masses contributed to cytological diagnosis
in a substantial proportion of cases, mainly when suspicious cells, healthy-appearing duct cells, or insufficient material was reported, without false-positives cases.
5) The 1988 Bethesda System for reporting cervical/vaginal cytological diagnosis
The EchoTip ProCore needles circumvent this limitation by obtaining intact tissue samples2, allowing for a histological diagnosis rather than conventional cytological diagnosis
based on individual cells.
