Primary confirmation of Lung lesions by Ultrasound guided FNAC. It is useful for to differentiate Infective, Benign and Malignant lesions of lung.
AIM: To study and confirm Cytological features of different types of lung lesions. 2. To assess the overall utility of FNAC in lung Pathology.
Methods: Present study done over a period of two years, from Feb 2017- Jan 2019. During the above period 57 cases are studied, in the Department of pathology, Govt Medical College, Kadapa, AP. The above cases were categorised based on cytological features obtained by FNAC. 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: Ultrasound guided FNAC of the Lung were performed on 57 cases. Out of 57 cases 48 (84.21%) cases were Primary neoplastic lesions, which are Squamous cell carcinoma, followed by large cell carcinoma 7 (12.28%) cases, Adeno carcinoma 2 (3.50%) cases.
