Cytojournal 2022 30;19:29. Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Department of Pathology, Government Medical College, Nagpur, Maharashtra, India.

Cytology of the uterine cervix is one of the most widely utilized tests and is best known primarily for the cytologic changes seen in precancerous lesions and invasive cancer of the uterine cervix. The more common inflammatory conditions of cervicitis and vaginitis are close clinical differentials, especially when they give rise to excessive blood-stained vaginal discharge. These infective conditions also result in variation in the appearance of otherwise benign squamous and glandular cells in cervical cytology specimens. Read More

Oestrogen receptor expression distinguishes non-ossifying fibroma from other giant cell containing bone tumours.

Virchows Arch 2022 May 25. Epub 2022 May 25.

Department of Pathology, Leiden University Medical Center, Albinusdreef 2, 2333 ZA, Leiden, The Netherlands.

Non-ossifying fibroma (NOF) and central giant cell granuloma (CGCG) are both benign tumours of bone with overlapping morphology and similar mutations in the RAS/MAPK pathway. However, NOF is located in the long bones with regression after puberty in contrast to CGCG which is located in the jaw bones and does not regress spontaneously. We hypothesised that endocrine regulation by oestrogen plays a role in the spontaneous regression in NOF. Read More

Integrated Head and Neck Oncology Program, DSRG-5, Mazumdar Shaw Center for Translational Research, Mazumdar Shaw Medical Foundation, Bangalore, India.

Conventional cytology-based diagnosis for thyroid cancer is limited with more than 30-45% of nodules categorized as indeterminate, necessitating surgery for confirming or refuting the diagnosis. This systematic review and meta-analysis were aimed at identifying immunocytochemical markers effective in delineating benign from malignant thyroid lesions in fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) samples, thereby improving the accuracy of cytology diagnosis. A systematic review of relevant articles (2000-2021) from online databases was carried out and the search protocol registered in PROSPERO database (CRD42021229121). Read More
