Hi! You're saying that this is a Romanowsky type stain? Well, the nuclear detail seems to show this is in fact a PAP stain!!! ??? :P

These cells seem a bit deteriorated and there is cellular dissociation and what appears to be diathesis?. The scant, basophilic and fragile cytoplasm seems to show these are glandular-type cells. The big, pleomorphic nuclei (one with conspicuous nucleolus) also points towards adenocarcinoma. Thought the photo is not the greatest, nor I can compare the cells with the rest of the slide, I would say Invasive Adenocarcinoma (at least).


metaplastic cells -the fine cytoplasmatic proces in picture 1
the giemsa stain the euchromatin and heterochromatin in cell nucleus (hematoxilin stain heterochromatin).You can destain the giemsa until the nuclear detail is more clear(few seconds on methanol check microscopicaly).I thinck they are metaplastic cells(the n/c ratio is normal)
