Figure 1: Effusions with epithelioid mesothelioma. Figure 2: Cytomorphology of epithelioid mesothelioma cells and tissue fragments in effusions. The tissue fragments sometimes show gaps or windows, a and b occur both as spheres with smooth surfaces c and d and in berry-like clusters with scalloped surface e and f. Figure 3: Cytomorphology of the epithelioid mesothelioma cells in effusions. The malignant mesothelioma cells often show macronucleoli.

Figure 4: Immunohistochemical and immunocytochemical reactivities of malignant mesothelioma MM cells as seen in cell blocks first and third column and cytospin preparations second and fourth column. Epithelial membrane antigen and D positivity is accentuated at the cell membrane, while specific WT1 reactivity is nuclear.
Figure 5: The use of double stainings. Cytospin preparations double-stained for BerEp4 brown and calretinin red; left column and desmin brown and epithelial membrane antigen red; right column are useful to distinguish malignant mesothelioma MM from both adenocarcinomas and reactive mesothelial cell proliferations. In MM samples the tumour cells show dominant reactivity to Calretinin and epithelial membrane antigen a and b , while reactive benign mesothelial cells reacts to calretinin and desmin c and d.

Material and Methods: Twenty tissue samples in paraffin blocks from the pathology department of Imam Reza Hospital in Tabriz whose pathology reports cited mesothelioma or metastatic lung adenocarcinomas, were included in the studies.
These tissues were deemed appropriate for IHC in terms of tissue quality and quantity. They were studied and evaluated for pathological markers. Conclusion: The results of this study showed that CEA, CK7, TTF1, Calretinin and HBME1 are suitable criteria for differentiating between metastatic lung adenocarcinoma and mesothelioma, and can differentiate the mesothelioma and adenocarcinoma with high accuracy.
