Aspiration cytology of tubular adenomas of the breast. An analysis of eight cases.
Acta Cytol. 1998 May-Jun; 42(3):657-62.AC

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To analyze fine needle aspirates from tubular adenomas of the breast and elucidate cytologic features unique to these tumors.

STUDY DESIGN

Fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology smears from eight tubular adenomas were reviewed, with special attention given to architectural features and individual cell characteristics. Smears were then compared with those from 25 fibroadenomas and 2 tubular carcinomas for analyzing the distinguishing features.

RESULTS

Aspirates from tubular adenomas revealed cells arranged as small, three-dimensional balls or clusters, tubules of different shapes and less frequently as closely approximated acini. Cells were uniform, with pale cytoplasm, which showed magenta granules in the Giemsa smears from two tumors. Straight tubules, closely approximated acini and intracytoplasmic granules were not seen in aspirates from fibroadenomas. The tubules in tubular adenomas always showed myoepithelial cells and were more open than the angulated tubules of tubular carcinoma.

CONCLUSION

Tubular adenomas on FNA cytology specifically show cells arranged as small, three-dimensional balls, tubules or closely approximated acini. Cells are uniform and sometimes show intracytoplasmic granules in Giemsa-stained smears.
