    Corpora amylacea and molluscum contagiosum on a cervical pap smear.
    Diagn Cytopathol 2017 Feb 8;45(2):179-181. Epub 2016 Nov 8.
    Department of Pathology, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, Ohio.
    When evaluating a Papanicolaou (Pap) smear, the cytology of the squamous epithelial cells is of utmost importance. This is what cytopathologists use to render a diagnosis, ranging from normal to atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) to high grade squamous intraepithelial lesions, or even squamous cell carcinoma. However, occasionally the pathologist will run into microscopic noncellular material as in our case, such as corpora amylacea on the slides, or even uncommon viral inclusions such as Molluscum contagiosum (MCV).

    Vascular network tightly enclosing lesions of molluscum contagiosum: Basket-like capillaries of molluscum.
    J Dermatol 2017 Jan 8;44(1):52-58. Epub 2016 Sep 8.
    Department of Pathology, Osaka Red Cross Hospital, Osaka, Japan.
    Immunohistochemical studies of one typical and two atypical cases of molluscum contagiosum with anti-CD34 monoclonal antibodies showed a tightly enclosing fine vasculature around the lesional masses of the disease. The thin interstitial septa between the lobules of the molluscum lesions also contained abundant endothelium. An electron microscopic study of a pinched-off lesion of common molluscum contagiosum demonstrated that the tightly enclosing blood vessels lacked muscle layers, suggesting that they were capillaries, being a distance of several hundred nanometers from the basal cells of the molluscum mass.
