Abstract

Although a knowledge of histopathology is of paramount importance in diagnostic cytology (Koss, 1979), it is far too simple to state that the appearance of cells in a cytological specimen is identical to that of the corresponding cells in histological material. There are several reasons for the presence of differences in cell images in his-tology and cytology, and of differences in cell harvest in the two methods.
