Case Report

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

Figure 4

Microscopic image of a highly cellular cell block showing large aggregates of malignant cells. The cells are morphologically similar to those seen in the liquid based cytology with high nuclear/cytoplasmic ratios and finely granular chromatin. No cytoplasmic orangeophilia or evidence of keratinization is discerned. Admixed apoptotic bodies, necrotic granular debris, and inflammatory cells are present (hematoxylin and eosin stain, Cell Block, 630x).
