The Papanicolaou smear was nondiagnostic, but the Wright-Giemsa stain was richly cellular and populated by three components: (1) numerous osteoclast-like multinuclear giant cells, (2) multiple malignant-appearing mononuclear and multinuclear cells, and (3) broad, tightly cohesive, flat sheets of large polygonal epithelial cells (figure 1): * The osteoclast-like giant cells contained multiple relatively monomorphic and bland-looking nuclei (ranging from 3 to 25 per cell) with abundant cytoplasm.
