Lymphoma is commonly encountered in fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology. The diagnosis and sub-classification of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, particularly, low-grade lymphomas, can be extremely difficult in cytology. The main reasons being morphological overlap between the various types of low-grade lymphomas, difficulty of distinguishing these lymphomas from benign lymphoid process and inappropriate triage of FNA sample. The strength of this interactive conference is its combination of a cytopathologist and hematopathologist, both experts in their field, to discuss their approach to and address the challenges of diagnosing lymphoma. Current lymphoma classification, reporting terminology and pertinent treatment will be also be addressed. Participants attending this session will walk away knowing precisely how to diagnose and sign out the various types of lymphomas.

The New Diagnostic Paradigms in Follicular Patterned Lesions of the Thyroid and Affects on Reporting of Thyroid Fine-Needle Aspiration Specimens

It has been proposed to classify the non-invasive follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) as “non-invasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary like nuclear features” (NIFT-P). No doubt this change in the name i.e. not calling FVPTC as “carcinoma” can lead to much confusion or add to it. This presentation will discuss the current diagnostic criteria for the follicular patterned lesions of the thyroid and the impact of this reclassification of FVPTC as “not carcinoma” on the reporting of thyroid FNA specimens.
