1 European Federation of Cytology Societies 4tu Annual Tutorial in Cytopathology Trieste, June 6-10, 2011 Fine needle cytology of lymph nodes: Non neoplasticneoplastic condictions Pio Zeppa MD PhD Pio Zeppa MD, PhD Dipartimento di Scienze Biomorfologiche e Funzionali, Università di Napoli, Federico II Naples, Italy

2 Why cytology for lymph nodes? REACTIVE!!

3 Why cytology for lymph nodes? Peri carotideal lymph node, the surgeon refused to perform the excision, US guided FNC: NHL Deep cervical node: suspect NHL, FNC: metastasis t high h respiratory tract, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, RX therapy No surgery! Diffuse spleen enlargement patient t F. S.: fourth relapse from MCL! t(11;14)(q13;q32)

4 Why cytology for lymphoma? 1,5 million of new cases in the world Doubled incidence in the last 20 yrs patients and new cases yrs, in Italy Increased n. of complete remissions and prolonged survivals 30% of patients will develop recurrences 30% will develop non lymphomatous swellings Non invasive procedures do not produce definitive diagnoses

5 Why cytology for lymphoma?

6 Lymph nodal cytology and ancillary techniques Hodgkin s disease immunocytochemistry metastases large cell NHL Diff Quik flow cytometry reactive? small medium cell NHL? FISH PCR others

7 From Zajicek to flow cytometry Colorado M, et al: Simultaneous cytomorphologic and multiparametric flow cytometric analysis onlymph node samples is faster than and as valid as histopathologic study todiagnose most non Hodgkin lymphomas.

11 Normal lymph node histology

12 Reactive hyperplasia (BRH)

13 non-specific hyperplasia with follicular centre expansion Non-specific hyperplasia with follicular centre expansion: smears show numerous centrocytes and centroblasts with two or more eccentrical nucleoli intermingled with small mature lymphocytes with slightly lengthened nuclei and cytoplasmic tales, plasma cells and immunoblasts.

14 non-specific hyperplasia with follicular centre expansion Cy: numerous centrocytes and centroblasts intermingled with a variable number of small lymphocytes. Differential diagnosis with a NHL is often pointed out. FC :T and B-cell populations a follicular centre cell population which co-expresses CD19/CD10 and FC :T and B-cell populations, a follicular centre cell population which co-expresses CD19/CD10 and balanced expression of kappa and lambda light chains

15 non-specific hyperplasia with interfollicular expansion Non specific hyperplasia with interfollicular expansion: the smear shows a prevalence of mature Non specific hyperplasia with interfollicular expansion: the smear shows a prevalence of mature lymphocytes with large nucleolated immunoblasts and plasma cells.

16 non-specific hyperplasia with interfollicular expansion FC in non specific hyperplasia with interfollicular expansion may shows a prevalence of T-lymphocytes (CD5) with CD2/3/7 co-expression.

17 Viral and post-vaccinial FNC show small lymphocytes and numerous centrocytes t and centroblasts intermingled with small mature lymphocytes, plasma cells and immunoblasts. Capillary structures, phagocyting histiocytes and eosinophils may also be present. Differential diagnosis: follicular lymphoma (see NHL).

18 Mononucleosis FNC shows normal cell type constituents including centrocytes and centroblasts. Numerous immunoblasts with large nucleoli and a rim of blue cytoplasm are present. Macrophages and capillary structures may be present. Differential diagnosis: Hodgkin lymphoma (see HL).

19 Histiocytosis This is mainly observed in lymph nodes draining inflamed tissues or organs or cancer. Corresponding smears may show histiocytes, small lymphocytes and macrophages with engulfed cytoplasm. Differential diagnosis: Sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy.

20 Suppurative lymphadenitis This condition can be observed in lymph nodes draining bacterial infections. Smears show of granulocytes and a variable amount of lymphocytes in a necrotic background. Attention should be paid because metastatic squamous cell carcinoma and rarely HL, may show a prevalent necrotico-suppurative background.

21 Granulomatous lymphadenitis Granulomatous lymphadenitis may be determined d by several infective agents or by different pathological processes, sarcoidosis and tuberculosis being the most frequent. Granulomatous lymphadenitis may also occur along hematological diseases or after chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Smears show epithelioid cells and/or multinucleated giant cells, either isolated or in a granulomatous arrangement in a lymphoid background.

22 Toxoplasmosis Reactive lymph node with toxoplasmosis:small groups of epitheliod cells intermingled with lymphocytes.

29 Cytology, phenotype (FC), IGH quantitative assessment (PCR), IGH integrity evaluation (FISH) of lymphoid cells IGH probe, split signal

30 IGH (14q32) is the most frequently involved in different translocations of B cell NHL t (14;18)(q32;q21) in FL and a subset of DLBCL t (11;14)(q13;q32) in MCL t (q14;q32) in 60 % in MM with different chromosomal partners t (9;14)(p13;q32) in 50% of LPCL and some cases of MZL t (8;14)(q24;q32) in 100% of BL The IGH FISH DNA probe, split signal, is a mixture of two fluorochrome: the green labelled DNA probe that binds to a 612 kb telomeric segment, and the red labelled that binds to a 460 kb centromeric segment, to the IGH breakpoint Therefore IGH FISH DNA probe, split signal should detect any breakage involving the IGH locus at chromosome 14q32.
