It is very important to recognize caseation in a cytologic preparation, because acid-fast and fungal staining are indicated. In Romanovski-stained preparations, caseous material is more faintly stained, usually rather pink, but the gross appearance of the material expelled from the FNA needle often provides a clue. It is creamy, somewhat granular, and often drier in appearance than pus. If the Romanovski stain (see Fig. 4-25, inset) fails to demonstrate neutrophils and abundant amorphous material is seen in a compatible clinical setting, one should suspect caseation and request mycobacterial and fungal cultures.
Figure 4-22. Lymph node biopsy specimen from the same patient as in Figure 4-21. Well-formed granulomas are surrounded by an eosinophil-rich inflammatory exudate (hematoxylin and eosin, ×200). cannot distinguish between sarcoidosis and infectious causes of noncaseating granulomas on the basis of morphology. Always culture the sample, and be sure that the clinician is aware of the patient’s clinical and radiologic findings. Figure 4-24 is taken from a tonsil biopsy of the man with sarcoid. It is easy to see why the term “epithelioid cells” is appropriate!
Lymphocytes and plasma cells are also seen, usually at the periphery of granulomas. In cytologic preparations, the transformed macrophages of granulomas have elongate oval to boomerangshaped nuclei and abundant, finely granular cytoplasm that is pink in H&E-stained slides and cyanophilic in Papanicolaou. The cytoplasmic borders are not well defined, and adjacent cells blend into one another. The cells bear some resemblance to epithelial cells and are called epithelioid macrophages. Multinucleated giant cells are often seen but not essential for the diagnosis of granuloma.
