of spindle cell lesion of neural origin with the closest resemblance of ectopic meningioma was rendered.
The accuracy of cytological diagnosis
depends on several factors including the experience of aspirator, sampling method, the adequacy of sample the target organ and the expertise of examiner (Cytotechnologist and cytopathologist).
The participants were included following a consecutive order by using the selection criteria previously established such as a previous cytological diagnosis

When the enriched method was used, detection of K-ras gene mutations would have contributed to cytological diagnosis
in 14 cases (Table 2): 6 of 9 with insufficient material, 5 of 5 containing suspicious cells, and 3 of 4 reported to contain healthy-appearing duct cells.
In all these cases, the cytological diagnosis
