Correlation of tissue biopsy and fine needle aspiration cytology with positron emission tomography results. - Pathology research international
F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans are positive in any condition which increases metabolism in a mass or tissue and are therefore not specific for neoplastic conditions. The use of an SUV cutoff value of 2.5 may not always help discriminate between benign and malignant cases. For a practicing cytopathologist doing adequacy checks during an image-guided procedure, it may be of value to be aware that elevated SUV values are not always indicative of a malignant process, and vice versa.
Myoepithelial carcinoma of the parotid gland metastatic to the kidney: case report and review of the literature. - Diagnostic cytopathology
Myoepithelial carcinoma is a rare locally aggressive malignant neoplasm of the salivary glands. The tumor is composed almost exclusively of tumor cells with myoepithelial differentiation and characterized by infiltrative growth and potential for distant metastasis. Tumor cells often display morphologic heterogeneity with a wide range of cytomorphologic features, such as epithelioid, plasmacytoid, spindle, and clear cell types, making its recognition challenging. Only limited reports on its metastatic behavior are available in the literature. We describe a case of metastatic myoepithelial carcinoma of the kidney from the parotid gland diagnosed by computed tomography guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy. Immunochemical studies are important to confirm myoepithelial differentiation of the tumor cells. Knowledge of the clinical history, radiographic characterization, and morphological correlation with the primary tumor are emphasized.Copyright 2009 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
