Cytopathology 2021 May 28 [Link] Patrizia Straccia, Daniele Magnini, Rocco Trisolini, Filippo Lococo, Marco Chiappetta, Alessandra Cancellieri Abstract Objective: Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is usually diagnosed by histological examination of tissue samples; however, effusion cytology offers an opportunity to identify a strong possibility for mesothelioma diagnosis at an early stage. We conducted a retrospective analysis of…
