Example text

This thick pasty looking aspirate (grossly) contains innumerable anucleate squames and keratinaceous debris admixed with scant crushed lymphocytes. Care should be taken not to confuse the keratinaceous debris with inpissated mucin in such cases. 33 — Lymphoepithelial cyst. On a transgastric FNA in this case, round globules of amorphouslooking material are seen admixed with benign contaminating gastric epithelium. This case was suspected to be a mucinous cystic neoplasm but on follow-up the lesion turned out to be a lymphoepithelial cyst.

Note the thin calcified rim. (B) Venous phase contrast-enhanced axial CT of the upper abdomen shows that the mass is still hypervascular in the venous phase. (C) Sagittal reconstruction of venous phase contrastenhanced CT confirms the small mass in the anterior portion of the neck of the pancreas. 24 Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology Selected Cases Illustrating Salient Radiologic Characteristics Case 9 A large hypervascular pancreatic endocrine neoplasm (34-year-old man with recent onset of severe hypertension and blurred vision).

34 — Lymphoepithelial cyst. The same globules of amorphous material from the above case stained red on Papanicolaou stain consistent with keratinaceous debris from a lymphoepithelial cyst. This amorphous material should not be confused with thick mucin. 35 — Lymphoepithelial cyst. An intimate admixture of polymorphous lymphocytes and superficial-type squamous epithelial cells and anucleate squames is seen. A bimodal admixture of these two cell types is highly suggestive of lymphoepilthelial cyst.
