This is a cytologic specimen from a sample of nasal tissue collected during rhinoscopy. Note the branching numerous fungal hyphae, which is typical of Aspergillus. This also was confirmed by histologic evaluation.

Mitoses are common as is koilocytosis (wrinkled nuclear membrane, perinuclear halo, binucleation; seen here in cervical cytologic smear), a cytopathic effect of Human papillomavirus (HPV).

CIN 1:Under the Bethesda System of cytological diagnosis, both CIN 1 and koilocytotic atypia/condyloma are categorized as Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LGSIL), reflecting their similar low incidences of progression.

CIN 2: CYTOLOGY: Squamous cells with enlarged, irregular, hyperchromatic nuclei. Less cytoplasm, similar to that of intermediate squamous epithelial cell. Under the Bethesda System of cytological diagnosis, CIN 2 and CIN 3 are both categorized as High-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HGSIL), reflecting their similar rates of progression, association with similar "high-" and "intermediate-risk" HPV types (16, 18,45,56 and 31, 33, 35, 51, 52), and the poor interobserver reproducibility in distinguishing between the two lesions cytologically.

Cells infected with cytomegalovirus are large and contain a single nucleus. A single large nuclear inclusion body is seen giving the cell an "owls-eye" appearance

The Australian Society of Cytology
Australian Society of Cytology Inc.
The Australian Society of Cytology launched its new website recently. The Objects of the Society are:
  1. to provide a forum for exchange of ideas on cytology;
  2. to foster an interest in the training of cytologists;
  3. to endeavour to achieve uniformity in the interpretation and reporting of cytological findings;
  4. to advance the knowledge and standards of cytology by means of seminars, lectures, case conferences and publication of relevant material in existing journals or by the publication of broadsheets;
  5. to encourage research in cytology;
  6. to establish liason with similar bodies having similar aims in other countries;
  7. to represent the special interests of cytological services before the various levels of government, and other organisations representing the interests of the professions and health services.
