Diagnostic Cytology
Fig. 13.90 Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. Loose three-dimensional cell
cluster exhibiting prominent nuclear folds in some of the cells. Fine-needle
aspirate (Papanicolaou x OI).
Fig. 13.91 Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. Cell sheet showing intranuclear
cytoplasmic protrusions. Fine needle aspirate (Papanicolaou x OI).
Fig. 13.92 Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. The tumor cells show small
nuclei with powdery chromatin, occasional nuclear folds, and large secretory
vacuoles. Sputum (Papanicolaou x OI).
Fig. 13.93 Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. This cell cluster shows
distended cytoplasmic vacuoles, variation in nuclear size, and a few
prominent nucleoli. Sputum (Papanicolaou x OI).
Fig. 13.94 Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma. Three-dimensional cell cluster.
Prominent nucleoli are present in some of the cells. Sputum (Papanicolaou
x OI).
Fig. 13.95 Papillary cell cluster from a patient with bronchioloalveolar
carcinoma. Sputum (Papanicolaou x OI).
