The endocervical cells obtained by the cervical cytologic smear
serve as evidence that the transformation zone or a portion of the transformation zone has been adequately sampled.
Only patients with single, first-time colposcopies who were referred because of abnormal cytologic smears
Colposcopy is used to evaluate women with previously determined premalignant or malignant cervical cytologic smears
Though the relation between cellularity and the detection potential of a cytologic smear
is not a subject of discussion, the minimum degree of cellularity certainly is.
The error is common when the colposcopist has knowledge of a preexisting minor cytologic smear
In august 2012, a 46-year-old woman (gravida 3, para 3) was admitted to Clinical Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sveti Duh University Hospital, in Zagreb, Croatia, with dyspareunia and tumor formation in the anterior vaginal wall, with neat gynecologic and personal history, intrauterine device (IUD) applied for the last five years, and normal Pap cytologic smears
The variability in results from the studies by different workers is due to multiple risk factors associated with causation of cervical cancer such as age at marriage, age at first delivery, age distribution of women screened, and methods utilized in obtaining cytologic smears
Comparison of nuclear morphometric parameters in cytologic smears
and histologic sections of spontaneous canine tumors.
The CTT has proven to be a reliable and useful method for performing immunocytochemistry and molecular testing by facilitating the use of direct cytologic smears
as a source of tumor cells in cases when the cell blocks lack adequate cellularity.
of dermatopathic lymphadenopathy show large dendritic cells with oval, vesicular, grooved nuclei and moderate amounts of pale cytoplasm.
Microfilariae of Wuchereria bancrofti on cytologic smears
An endocrinologist performed all samplings, and the cytologic smears
were interpreted by a single cytopathologist.
The risk of dysplasia and carcinoma is the same for the anus as it is for the cervix, so physicians can take anal cytologic smears
Microfilariae of Wuchereria bancrofti in cytologic smears
Finally, although giant-cell tumor in association with salivary duct carcinoma is difficult to interpret accurately in cytologic smears
, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of malignant-appearing, giant-cell-rich lesions of the salivary glands.
