Malignant serous effusions

Malignant serous effusion in the pleura, peritoneum and (less frequently) pericardium is a frequent complication of primary adenocarcinomas, particularly in female patients with breast or ovarian cancer, and in both sexes with lung carcinoma. In female patients, about 2/3 of ovarian carcinoma cases have intraperitoneal free cancer cells (IFCCs) in

New page published: clusters with collagen cores (see the right column)

New pages about the various diagnostic features exhibited by mesothelial cells now appear in the pages section. The page of the day is clusters with collagen cores. For contributing or adding personal illustrations, please do not hesitate to send material to the project coordinator.

Molecular markers in serous effusions: new images

Molecular markers in serous effusions: new images

New, original images have been received from Ben Davidson (Oslo, Norway) about modern immunocytochemical markers that can be successfully applied to effusions. Some markers are clearly diagnostic (calretinin, MUC-4, HER2/neu...) whereas others may have a prognostic value. For example, the growth factor granulin-epithelin precursor (GEP) is a novel
Image of the day: papillary adenocarcinoma

Image of the day: papillary adenocarcinoma

As it is stated in the New England Journal of Medicine "Images in Clinical Medicine" section, images are an important part of what we can learn in medicine. Images shown are those of a Papanicolaou-stained peritoneal fluid in a 89-year-old woman. The patient had no particular history, except ascitis. Case 09EC04672, provided by E. Piaton Cytologica

New, recent reference about psammoma bodies

Das, Associate Professor at the Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine of Kuwait University, recently published a paper ** entitled " Psammoma body: a product of dystrophic calcification or of a biologically active process that aims at limiting the growth and spread of tumor? " in the April 2009 issue of Diagnostic Cytopathology. **O
