Cytohistological Evaluation of Chest wall Nodules: A Series of Rare Entities from a Tertiary Care Centre
Keywords:chest wall nodule, FNAC, Histopathology
Chest wall is a complex system which provides rigid protection to the vital organs. Many pathologic processes
such as congenital and developmental anomalies, inflammatory and neoplastic lesions involve the chest wall. Due
to the wide spectrum of disease involvement it is quite challenging for the clinicians as well as pathologists for an
accurate diagnosis of these lesions. In many of these cases, FNAC (Fine needle aspiration cytology) is not sufficient
for exact categorization of these lesions for which histopathological evaluation along with special stains and IHC
(Immunohistochemistry) plays important role. In the literatures, very few studies of cytohistological evaluation of
chest wall nodules are described. In this case series, we described cytohistological evaluation of four rare entities
of chest wall. We reported epithelioidhemangioendothelioma, Askin’s tumor, Pilomatricoma and Inflammatory
pseudotumor one case each.
