Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology of Chondroid Tenosynovial Giant Cell Tumor of the Hand.

Abdou AG, Aiad H, Youssef Asaad N - Rare Tumors (2015)

Bottom Line: Giant cell tumor (GCT) of tendon sheath is a localized form of tenosynovial GCT, which preferentially affects the joints of hands and feet.Chondroid metaplasia is a rare phenomenon in tenosynovial GCT either in localized or diffuse types.The current case investigates the cytological and histopathological features of chondroid GCT of tendon sheath in a 22-year-old female presenting with wrist swelling.

ABSTRACT
Giant cell tumor (GCT) of tendon sheath is a localized form of tenosynovial GCT, which preferentially affects the joints of hands and feet. Chondroid metaplasia is a rare phenomenon in tenosynovial GCT either in localized or diffuse types. The current case investigates the cytological and histopathological features of chondroid GCT of tendon sheath in a 22-year-old female presenting with wrist swelling.

Fine needle aspiration cytology of the hand mass revealed mononuclear stromal cells with slight spindling (A) admixed with osteoclast giant cells (B). The stromal cells showed occasional grooving (arrow) (A) and intracytoplasmic vacuoles (arrow) (C) (Hematoxylin and Eosin staining 400×).

Mentions: A 22-year-old female presented to our hospital with a firm and painless swelling in her right wrist, 6 months before. No imaging studies were performed. The swelling was attached to the underlying tissue. Fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology was performed and the aspirate was smeared and stained with Hematoxylin and Eosin. The aspirate was cellular and revealed many mononuclear stromal cells (histiocytes), few spindled shaped stromal cells and multinucleated osteoclast giant cells (Figure 1).
