Non-small Cell Carcinoma of the Lung, FNA

These cells have almost all the cardinal features of malignancy: marked variation in nuclear size and shape, irregularly distributed nuclear chromatin, and large, prominent nucleoli. Clot sections from this specimen showed tumor cells positive for p63 and negative for TTF1-alpha by immunohistochemistry, so my final diagnosis was poorly-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma.
