Namely, the percentage of positivity in vesicles was much higher than that of pustules.11 Clinicians can easily obtain experience in using the Tzanck smear effectively in office practice with the help of supplemental screening by a cytopathologist or cytotechnologist

The accuracy of cytological diagnosis depends on several factors including the experience of aspirator, sampling method, the adequacy of sample the target organ and the expertise of examiner (Cytotechnologist
