Urothelial Cells

Uroepithelial Cells

Figure 1.2. Benign Urothelial Cells—catheterized urine: Clusters of benign urothelial cells are admixed with squamous cells. Several acute inflammatory cells are seen in the background. The urothelial cells are seen in two main clusters, one cluster of which is smaller than the second. Cytoplasmic vacuolization and variability in nuclear size and shape is observed. Although the cytoplasm appears to be homogeneous, the nuclear cytoplasmic ratio is not increased. In catheterized specimens, these clusters represent benign or reactive urothelial cells. (600x)

Urothelial Cells
Figure 1.3. Normal Urothelial Cells—voided urine: Large round nuclei, frequently multiple, with prominent nucleoli are characteristic of normal umbrella (superficial) cells. Contrast these with the normal intermediate squamous cell in the lower left corner and in the center. (600x)

Figure 1.4. Glandular Cells—bladder washing: Columnar cells in a urinary specimen, if benign appearing, are of no clinical significance. They may arise in a focus of normal glandular epithelium in the bladder, but they may be mistaken for a glandular lesion. Cytomorphologic criteria should be applied as for any body site. (600x)

Figure 1.5. Glandular Cells—bladder washing: Elongated glandular cells surround degenerated debris. Follow-up showed endometriosis. (600x)
Glandular Cells Bladder Washings
Figure 1.6. Benign Urothelial Cells—catheterized urine: In this catheter-ized urine, a loosely cohesive group of benign urothelial cells is present. These cells have an elongated glandular appearance. The cells have small dot-like nucleoli and abundant cytoplasm that is slightly frayed. (600x)
Catheterized Urine Cytology
Figure 1.7. Benign Urothelial Cells—catheterized urine: A cluster of benign urothelial cells is admixed with scattered benign superficial cells. The cells have oval nuclei and frothy cytoplasm. The nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio is slightly increased although the nuclei are small. (600x)
Normal Appearance Vagina
Figure 1.8. Benign Squamous Cells—voided urine: Numerous benign squamous cells are seen in this voided urine specimen from a 37 year old woman. The majority of these squamous cells are intermediate in appearance. These squamous cells may originate in the bladder or vagina. (600x)
Cells Urine
Figure 1.9. Normal Cells—voided urine: Normal urothelial cells are characterized by large round nuclei, often multiple, with prominent nucleoli and vesicular cytoplasm. In this photograph, several squamous cells are present and are characteristically without nucleoli. (400x)
Urothelial Cells
Figure 1.10. Vaginal Contaminant—voided urine: Acute inflammation and benign squamous cells admixed with bacteria are seen in the background. Benign urothelial cells also are present. In some voided urines, vaginal contaminant may obscure the benign urothelial cells. (600x)
