Cytodiagnosis of Basal Cell Carcinoma and Actinic Keratosis Using Papanicolaou and May-grunvald-giemsa Stained Cutaneous Tissue Smear in Relation to Photodynamic Therapy

The purpose of this study is to compare and evaluate the diagnostic performance of scrape cytology using two different cytological staining techniques, and to evaluate additional touch imprint cytology with that of histopathology of superficial basal cell carcinoma and actinic keratosis.
