Derm 101: cytology in practice


Cytology, more than any other technique, is a vital diagnostic tool in the diagnosis of bacterial and other infections, inflammatory lesions, and tumours. Sampling is quick, easy and cheap. Cytology can confirm the diagnosis, identify the likely organisms, guide the need for bacterial culture and susceptibility testing and/or other diagnostic steps, help you chose appropriate antimicrobials, and help monitor the treatment efficacy.

Key learning objectives:

1. Cytology sampling and staining techniques

2. Effective microscope use

3. Algorithmic approach to interpreting cytology samples
