Figure 1: Metastatic small cell carcinoma: Ultrasound-guided FNA of a pancreatic mass in a 66-year-old man: Cytomorphological features and immunocytochemical stainings on FNA smears. (a) The neoplastic cells show nuclear molding and have round to oval nuclei with a salt and pepper type chromatin pattern (Papanicolaou, ×400). (b) Highly cellular smear show small, round tumor cells with scanty cytoplasm, extensive nuclear molding, and mitotic activity (MGG, ×400). (c) Dissociated lymphoma-like tumor cells along with a few cytoplasmic fragments resembling lymphoglandular bodies are observed (MGG, ×1000). (d) Positive reaction for cytokeratin in most of the tumor cells (CK, ×400) (e) Positive reaction for neurone-specific enolase in a few neoplastic cells, including rare large cells (NSE, ×1000)
