30 PAMRGs have features similar to the Splendore-Hoeppli reaction31; however, they are not associated with an underlying microorganism. 32 Hematoidin is distinct from both actinomycosis and PAMRG and is often found in cavities containing old blood. In our experience, aspirates from pancreatic pseudocysts and organizing hematomas are good places to find hematoidin crystals (Fig. 4-15). We have rarely seen them in cervicovaginal smears. PAMRGs are far more common in the latter. Neutrophils are an important first line of defense against certain fungi,33 including Candida, Aspergillus, and zygomycetes (mucormycosis agents).

Remember to close the substage condenser! Paucicapsular forms of Cryptococcus often stain weakly with mucicarmine. 20-22 Granulomatous Inflammation Admixed with Neutrophils A mixture of epithelioid macrophages and neutrophils is the typical inflammatory response to many of the dimorphic fungi, 40 Cytopathology of Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases B A C Figure 4-27. Mycobacteria are seen in Kinyoun stain from cytologic preparations. A, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. B, Mycobacterium avium complex.

Compare the neutrophil-rich inflammation with presence of bacilli in Figure 4-5A and B with the presence of cell outlines of coagulative necrosis and apoptotic bodies in Figure 4-5C and D. The former was sent for cultures, and the latter was shown to be predominantly B lymphocytes by immunochemistry and confirmed as large B-cell lymphoma by biopsy. If in doubt, it is best to err on the side of caution and submit an aliquot of FNA from suspected infections for aerobic and anaerobic bacterial, fungal, and mycobacterial cultures.
