Cytopathology Case Reports
Cytopathology Case Reports is the examination of cells from the body under the microscope to identify the signs and characteristics of the disease. Cytopathology is often loosely called "cytology," a word that simply means the study of cells.
A cytopathology report tells us whether the cells studied contain signs of disease. Cells examined for cytopathology can come from fluids extracted from body cavities - e.g. urine, sputum (spit), or fluids accumulating inside the chest or abdomen. Cells can also be extracted by inserting needles into lumps or diseased areas or tissues - called fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC).
Laboratories may include recommendations as part of the Gynaecology Case reports. These may include a suggestion to the clinician for repeat cytology after a certain time interval or after treatment, or for tissue studies to further evaluate epithelial cell abnormalities.
