Adenomatoid tumor of testis: A rare cytological diagnosis.

Makkar M, Dayal P, Gupta C, Mahajan N - J Cytol (2013)

Bottom Line: Adenomatoid tumor is a benign neoplasm of the male and female genital tracts arising from mesothelial cells.Therefore, it is imperative that pathologists should be well aware of its cytological features so as to avoid erroneous diagnosis and hence prevent unnecessary surgical interventions.We hereby, present a case of adenomatoid tumor of testis in a 41 year male diagnosed by FNAC and later confirmed by histopathological examination.

ABSTRACT
Adenomatoid tumor is a benign neoplasm of the male and female genital tracts arising from mesothelial cells. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) plays a pivotal role in its preoperative diagnosis. Therefore, it is imperative that pathologists should be well aware of its cytological features so as to avoid erroneous diagnosis and hence prevent unnecessary surgical interventions. We hereby, present a case of adenomatoid tumor of testis in a 41 year male diagnosed by FNAC and later confirmed by histopathological examination.

Photomicrograph of FNAC smear showing moderate cellularity with sheets of monotonous round to oval cells showing indistinct cell borders and moderate to abundant pale vacuolated cytoplasm. The nuclei are eccentric and monomorphic with fine granular chromatin and small inconspicuous nucleoli. Background shows bare nuclei and few lymphocytes (MGG, ×200)

Figure 1: Photomicrograph of FNAC smear showing moderate cellularity with sheets of monotonous round to oval cells showing indistinct cell borders and moderate to abundant pale vacuolated cytoplasm. The nuclei are eccentric and monomorphic with fine granular chromatin and small inconspicuous nucleoli. Background shows bare nuclei and few lymphocytes (MGG, ×200)

Mentions: Moderately cellular smears consisted of tumor cells arranged in monolayered sheets and loosely cohesive clusters. Cells were round to oval with indistinct cell borders and moderate to abundant pale vacuolated cytoplasm. The monomorphic nuclei were eccentrically placed with fine granular chromatin and small inconspicuous nucleoli. Occasional binucleated cells were seen. Background showed pink amorphous material along with bare nuclei and few lymphocytes [Figure 1]. These cytological features suggested the diagnosis of AT. The patient underwent conservative testis sparing surgery, with excision of nodule.
