ABSTRACT
Introduction: Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) of the lymph node is a widely applied technique for rapid and accurate diagnosis. It is minimally invasive, cost effective and widely accepted technique.
Aims and objectives: Categorization of various metastatic malignancies diagnosed on FNAC of lymph nodes and their correlation with addiction.
Materials and methods: Conducted on patients attending the cytopathology section of Pathology department of B. J Medical College, Ahmedabad in between January 1st, 2019 and August 31st, 2019. Addiction history was obtained in each case.
Results: Out of 60 cases, 35 cases show metastatic squamous cell carcinoma, 14 cases show metastatic poorly differentiated carcinoma, 6 cases show metastatic breast carcinoma, 3 cases show metastatic adeno carcinoma, 1 case show metastatic necrotizing squamous cell carcinoma and 1 case show metastatic papillary carcinoma of thyroid.
Conclusion: FNAC is a minimally invasive, cost effective and quick method of diagnosing malignant involvement of draining lymph nodes which helps the clinician plan management of patients more effectively.
