- Multinucleated giant cells in fine-needle aspiration of thyroid nodules: their diagnostic significanceN S Shabb
Department of Pathology, American University of Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon
Diagn Cytopathol 21:307-12. 1999..The accompanying cell population was characteristic of each disease. The quantity and quality of MNGCs in thyroid FNA may be helpful in narrowing the differential diagnosis. Diagn. Cytopathol. 1999;21:307-312...
- Clear cell sarcoma (malignant melanoma of soft parts): fine-needle aspiration cytology of a highly pigmented tumorNina Salem Shabb

Diagn Cytopathol 28:313-5. 2003..Diagnosis of clear cell sarcoma by fine-needle aspiration is difficult, as melanin is usually absent. Here we describe a case of a primary clear cell carcinoma with abundant melanin, making diagnosis definitive...
- Subacute thyroiditis: fine-needle aspiration cytology of 14 cases presenting with thyroid nodulesNina S Shabb
Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, American University of Beirut Medical Centre, Beirut, Lebanon
Diagn Cytopathol 34:18-23. 2006..One case was suspicious for malignancy. We conclude that the cytologic features of SAT are predictable, particularly, in the appropriate clinical setting. FNA is also helpful in ruling out concomitant neoplastic conditions...
