Curschmann's spirals and actinomycosis in a fine needle aspirate of the parotid

Curschmann's spirals and actinomycosis in a fine needle aspirate of the parotid

Acta Cytologica 33(6): 903-906

Fine needle aspiration (FNA) of bilaterally enlarged submandibular salivary glands in a 52-yr-old man yielded both Curschmann's spirals and Actinomyces filaments in the FNA smears. Histological study of specimens from a bilateral submandibulectomy confirmed the actinomycosis but failed to demonstrate the presence of spirals.
