Fine-needle aspiration washout in the diagnosis of cystic parathyroid adenoma.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Mar 10;13(3). Epub 2020 Mar 10.

Department of Endocrine Surgery, Scientific Center of Surgery named after M.A.Topchubashov, Baku, Azerbaijan.

Cystic parathyroid adenomas are one of the rare causes of neck masses. Due to its rarity, it causes misdiagnosis and wrong treatments and has undesirable consequences. The measurement of parathyroid hormone in fine-needle aspiration washout fluid is a minimally invasive, safe method for the diagnosis of parathyroid cysts and seems to be more useful than Tc-99m sestamibi (MIBI) parathyroid single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT.

Turk Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Mar 14;57(1):42-45. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Pathology, Nihon University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

We here report a rare salivary gland tumor, a non-sebaceous lymphadenoma (NSLA), in the parotid gland with positive technetium-99m (99mTc) pertechnetate scintigraphy and cervical masses that was difficult to distinguish from malignant lymphoma preoperatively. A 65-year-old Japanese woman presented to our institution with a painless left parotid mass that had been gradually enlarging for three months. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a solid mass (30 mm) in the tail of the left parotid gland with three swellings (each 10 mm) on the periphery of the parotid gland.

We report two cases of breast cancer metastatic to the skeletal muscle, diagnosed by ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (US-FNA) biopsy done by interventional cytopathologists at an outpatient cytopathology center. Our two patients presented with lower anterior neck firmness and chest wall mass, respectively. Read More

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration cytology in patients with known or suspected extra-pulmonary malignancies: A cytopathology-based study.

Cytopathology 2019 01 21;30(1):82-90. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Department of Pathology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Cystic masses of the lateral neck - Proposition of an algorithm for increased treatment efficiency.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2018 Sep 12;46(9):1664-1668. Epub 2018 Jun 12.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, (Head of Department: Prof. Dr. Petra Ambrosch), Head and Neck Surgery, Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel, Arnold-Heller-Str. 3, Building 27, D-24105, Kiel, Germany.

Preoperative discrimination of solitary cervical branchial cleft cysts from cystic lymph node metastasis often is challenging. Surgical excision of the cystic formation and consecutive histopathological examination of tissue specimens are the only means resulting in the correct diagnosis. However, in case of malignancies surgery on the lateral neck prior to the definitive treatment is considered to negatively influence the patients' outcome. Read More

Auris Nasus Larynx 2018 Oct;45(5):1127-1129

Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Kobe University Hospital, Kobe, Japan.

Carcinoma arising in lingual thyroid is an extremely rare entity accounting for only 1% of all reported ectopic thyroids. Here, we report a case of carcinoma arising in lingual thyroid, which has been successfully managed by transoral resection and bilateral neck dissections. A lingual mass 4-cm in diameter with calcification was incidentally detected by computed tomography at medical check-up. Read More

Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology for Neck Masses in Childhood. An Illustrative Approach.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2018 04 22;8(2). Epub 2018 Apr 22.

Department of Lab. Medicine and Pathology, University of Alberta, 8440 112 St., Edmonton, AB T6G 2B7, Canada.

The primary indication of fine-needle aspiration cytology of the head and neck region is a thyroid nodule or a mass located in the cervical area or the head. Although a thyroid nodule may raise the suspicion of malignancy, less than one in 20 cases results in a carcinoma. In addition, the list of differential diagnoses is quite different according to the age of the patient. Read More

Giant Pilomatricoma Arising as a Rapidly Growing Vascularized Tumor in a Child.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Sep;40(9):690-693

Department of Vascular Medicine, Rangueil Hospital, Toulouse University, Toulouse, France.

In this observation, we report an unusual presentation of a pilomatricoma in an 8-year-old girl who was initially referred to the department of vascular medicine for diagnosis and care of a suspected mixed lymphatic venous malformation. The lesion on her left shoulder presented as a giant bluish-purple red solitary mass, painful and rapidly growing, measuring 7 cm in anteroposterior diameter. This mass did not present the typical characteristics of a lymphatic venous malformation but exhibited warning signs of malignancy on clinical examination and imaging. Read More

Current usefulness of aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the head and neck diagnosis.

Pathologica 2017 Dec;109(4):355-362

Otorhinolaryngology Unit, "A. Murri" Hospital, Fermo, Italy.

Background: Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a well established and widely used method for both a preliminary and sometime final non-invasive pathologic diagnosis. FNAC is a simple and inexpensive diagnostic tool and should represent the standard of care in developing and resource-poor countries while maintaining its diagnostic usefulness in developed and advanced ones.

Methods: The concordance between preoperative FNAC and final histology was evaluated in 168 patients operated on at the Otorhinolaryngology Unit, "A. Read More
