In 27 fine needle aspirates (FNA) from patients with carcinoma breast, estrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR) receptors were determined by peroxidase-antiperoxidase immunocytochemical method. Thirteen of 25 adequate FNA were positive for PR and 8, 4 and 1 of these were found to be positive, indeterminate (borderline positive) and negative for ER. FNA smears can thus be used for determination of ER and PR inorder to plan therapy especially in the case of small tumors which are not amenable to biochemical studies.
