Abstract

Extrapleural pneumonectomy to treat malignant mesothelioma may offer a significant survival advantage for selected patients. The role of effusion cytology in these patients has not been previously examined. Toevaluate this, cytology, pathology, and medical records of 26 cases in 21 patients who underwent extrapleural pneumonoectomy because of malignant mesothelioma were reviewed. Positive cytologic results were noted on average 13 months later than negative results. Recurrence was most common in the peritoneum, followed by the ipsilateral thorax and contralateral thorax. Five of 11 true-negative results were secondary toinfection; cytologic analysis revealed neutrophils in each case. Fourof 5 false-negative cases were from the ipsilateral thorax, and no mesothelial cells were found. When these 4 cases are excluded, the sensitivity of cytologic examination in this setting, was 91%, and specificity was 100%. Effusion cytology in patients after extrapleural pneumonectomy is an effective means of diagnosing recurrent malignant mesothelioma.
