A 68 year-old man presented with sore throat and a lump in his right neck. Radiological imaging showed an irregularly enlarged right thyroid lobe. Ultrasound examination confirmed a 5.8 cm right mid pole thyroid nodule and multiple small lymph nodes in the neck, the largest one measuring 2.2 cm. A whole body CT did not reveal any other abnormalities. No significant past or family history was noted. An ultrasound-guided FNA of the right thyroid nodule was performed using 25-gauge needle. Direct smears were prepared and stained with Diff Quik and Papanicolaou stains.

A 22 year old African American male presented with a history of a slowly enlarging occipital scalp lesion. He had been incarcerated for almost one year. His past medical history is unremarkable with the exception that he remembered he had been "hit over the head with a bottle" in a fight one year previously. The physical examination revealed a visibly ulcerated nodule that was tender to palpation. Superficial fine needle aspiration was performed without difficulty or complication.
