Comparison of 4 fixation and staining methods for the cytologic evaluation of ear canals with clinical evidence of ceruminous otitis externa



Comparison of 4 fixation and staining methods for the cytologic evaluation of ear canals with clinical evidence of ceruminous otitis externa



Veterinary Clinical Pathology 35(2): 194-198



Background: Swab cytology of ear canals is one of the most useful and rapid methods to assess the presence of external ear infections. Smears are generally stained with rapid Romanowsky-type stains, with or without prior heat fixation. Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare 4 different methods of fixation and staining of ear swab cytology samples from dogs. Methods: Eight dogs with otitis externa were selected from a dermatology referral population.
