The individual cells at the periphery of mesothelial clusters show recogniz- able cytoplasmic features of mesothelial cells and the nuclei do not touch the cell borders of the cells along the periphery of the group. 13a). 13). All mesothelial cells, including scattered solitary reactive mesothelial cells, are seemingly of one type, although with a wide morphologic spectrum. 11). 2 Panorama of mesothelial cells (ascitic fluid). Central to near central nuclei. 5). 2g,i,o,p,r,t,u,v,w). 5). 4 Mesothelial cells versus adenocarcinoma cells (ascitic fluid).

8). 3). 7). 13 Metastatic adenocarcinoma with a two-cell population (ascitic fluid). Blue arrow RM highlights reactive mesothelial cells (central nuclei, peripheral vacuolation, community borders of cell groups formed by cell membrane) and red arrow NC highlights adenocarcinoma cells (eccentric nuclei touching the cell membranes without any rim of cytoplasm between the nucleus and cell membrane; the community border of cell groups is formed by mostly nuclear contours). 14 The cell-in-cell pattern of neoplastic cells (metastatic mammary carcinoma, pleural fluid).

Their presence is due to forcible detachment of the serosal membrane during operative incision or intraoperative lavages, or both. 8). 10) in effusions are likely to be the most important diagnostic pitfall. 4) associated with groups of reactive mesothelial cells in sheets in effusions are as follows: 1. 26 Hepatomegaly related to congestive heart failure, leading to peritoneal effusion with exfoliation of sheets of reactive mesothelial cells from the surface of the congested liver. 3. 4. 5. Ischemic conditions such as pulmonary infarction, ischemic colitis, and occlusion of mesenteric blood vessels frequently show reactive changes in the serosal membranes surrounding the ischemic areas.
