Abstract

This is the first in a four-part continuing education series on cytology. This article discusses the role of immunocytochemistry in the laboratory. The technique and its applications are discussed, with markers of tumor classification and markers of tumor behavior highlighted. The second article of the series is on cancer cytogenetics. Following articles will be about fine-needle aspiration and cytology's relationship to laboratory service. This article focuses on cytology's increasingly important role in disease diagnosis. Because cytologic samples may be the only diagnostic samples available from patients with cancer, many tests traditionally performed on histologic material are now being performed on cytologic samples. Immunocytochemistry is one technique shown to be important in diagnostic tumor pathology.
