Figure 7: Metastatic small-cell carcinoma: Fine-needle aspiration cytology: (a) Loose aggregates with dispersed small monomorphic cells with scanty cytoplasm, finely granular nuclear chromatin and inconspicuous nucleoli. Nuclear molding and smearing artifacts are evident (PAP, ×400). Fine-needle aspiration biopsy: (b) Fragments of small round tumor cells with adjacent benign hepatocytes (H and E, ×400). Positive immunostaining for (c) chromogranin (×400) and (d) synaptophysin (×400)
