All seemed fibrotic with sparse aspirate. Microscopic examination: 1. FNA smears from the right upper arm show an eosinophilic granular fluid in the background with sparse cellularity. Occasional fragments resembling a parasitic wall are seen along with few mixed inflammatory cells including a single multinucleate giant cell. and structures suspicious of hooklets. Skeletal tissue fragments are also seen. 2. Smears from right posterior abdominal wall show scanty cellularity with few macrophages, occasional inflammatory cells and scattered structures resembling hooklets. ~ , Many crystal like structures and some cholesterol clefts are also seen. 3. Smears from right side anterior abdominal wall show predominantly hemorrhage with an occasional multinucleate giant cell and a stromal fragment with entrapped plump spindle nuclei. IMPRESSION: FNA smears from soft tissue lumps in right upper arm, right side posterior abdominal wall and right side anterior abdominal wall are suggestive of a fibrotic chronic inflammatory lesion, with suspicion of an organized/ healed parasitic cyst.
