Imprint cytology of two hundred selected cases of lymphadenopathy were studied, diagnosed and correlated with histopathology. One hundred and two cases were categorised as malignant, 82 cases as non-qJalignant and in 16
cases no diagnosis could be made due to inadequate material. The experience gained reconfirmed the usefulness of imprint cytology as a reliable and dependable method for diagnosing and classifying cases of lymphadenopathy since a correct diagnosis can be made in 90.50% of the cases. Of the remaining 9.5% cases false negative cyto diagnosis were made in 1.5% cases and no diagnosis could be made in 8% cases due to scanty material.
