As the distinction is signifi cant and cannot always be made on the basis of clinical fi ndings, various immunohistochemical panels have been proposed to aid in determining...Continue reading →

Specificity of cytologic features of metastatic lung adenocarcinoma in malignant pleural effusion

Metastatic lung adenocarcinoma is commonly presented with effusions. The cytologic examination of the fl uid is one of the fi rst diagnostic techniques attempted in these patients. Identifi cation of the cancer cells in pleural fl uid specimens, using minimal, less invasive and cost effective intervention is crucial especially...Continue reading →
