Case Report

Small Cell Carcinoma of the Uterine Cervix in a Pregnant Patient Diagnosed with Liquid Based Cytology and Cell Block Immunocytochemistry

Figure 2

The individual malignant cells are small in size (not larger than twice the size of internal control segmented neutrophils). Areas of granular proteinaceous diathesis material are evident clinging to the lesional cells. Single necrotic cells (apoptotic bodies) are also observed (Papanicolaou stain, ThinPrep, 1000x).
