The intraoperative cytological diagnosis was compared with final diagnosis on the formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded histopathological sections to assess the diagnostic accuracy of squash smears in CNS tumors [Table 2].
The cytological diagnosis have been reported to be difficult due to morphological similarity between malignant and reactive mesothelialcells (Merlo and Rosciani, 2012), however present case was diagnosed ante-mortem on the basis of cytological examination of the peritoneal fluid.
Preoperative cytological diagnosis is rarely accurate (4).
Cytological diagnosis based on FNAC specimens is typically straightforward in case of certain subtypes of lymphoma, such as the conventional diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and Burkitt's lymphoma, which are marked by a monotonous tumor cell population [10].

The final histopathological diagnosis of each case was then compared with the cytological diagnosis.
The ultrasound features were compared with the cytological diagnosis (FNAB as reference standard) to determine sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value, and positive predictive value.
The categorization of the smears after cytological diagnosis was done in accordance with The Bethesda System for reporting thyroid cytopathology.
When discussing the performance of any of these tests it must be taken into consideration that the ideal 'rule-in' test should have a positive predictive value (PPV) similar to that of a malignant cytological diagnosis (Bethesda category VI) (98.6%), while an ideal 'ruleout' test should have a negative predictive value (NPV) comparable to that of benign cytology (Bethesda category II) (96.3%) (7).
