Role of Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) in the Diagnosis of Prostatic Lesions with Histologic Correlation

This study was carried-out to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and the role ofFNAC in the diagnosis of prostatic lesions. FNAC was performed on 64 patients presented with enlarged prostate. Cytological diagnosis by fine needle aspiration (FNA) of the prostate was compared with histological diagnosis in 60 patients. Of these, 42 cases were cytologically diagnosed as benign lesions, 18 cases as malignant. In remaining 4 cases, materials were inadequate for diagnosis in one case and biopsy materials were not available in 3 cases.
