Lesions of liver are generally evaluated by Ultrasound guided FNAC. It is useful for differentiate from Non-neoplastic to neoplastic lesions of liver.
AIM: To analyse the various types of liver lesions according to age and sex of the patients. 2. To study the Cytomorphological features of liver aspirate.
Methods: Present study done over a period of two years, ie 2016-2018. A total number of 86 cases were studied in the Department of Pathology, Govt. Medical College, Kadapa, AP. All these cases were categorised based on Cytomorphological features, obtained by Fine needle aspiration.
Materials required for FNAC: 10 ml sterile disposable syringe with 25-22G needles. Suitable fixative is Isopropyl Alcohol. Alcohol fixed slides taken up for H&E staining.
Results: FNAC of liver were performed on 86 cases. Out of 86 cases primary malignant lesions are 32 (37.20%), Metastatic lesions are 53 (61.62%), One case of Hepatoblastoma (1.16%).
