Cytology of the Lymphoid System – Case Studies
Of all the different lesions and organs sampled in first opinion practices, enlarged lymph nodes are probably one of the most common. Aspiration from peripheral lymph nodes is easy to perform, minimally invasive, and frequently diagnostic. In this article we present a few cytological cases representing some of the more common situations encounted with lymph node aspiration. For clinicians with an interest in improving their skills in cytological interpretation, self-review of prepared cytology smears is encouraged. However, examination by an experienced cytopathologist is always strongly recommended, since subtle findings, which may be relevant to the final diagnosis, may be overlooked by inexperienced viewers.
