Diagnoses are reported as “negative for malignant cells”, “positive for malignant cells” or “suspicious for malignancy”, followed by a description. A case is called suspicious when the abnormal cells are too poorly preserved or too few to support a definite diagnosis of malignancy. Criteria for the adequacy of effusion specimens have not been established.
