Cytologic examination of the sediment of voided urine is a good non-invasive method for detection, diagnosis and follow-up of bladder tumours. Fifty patients with complaints of haematuria were included in the study, cystoscopy, urine examination and biopsy was done in all the cases. Forty cases showed positivity for malignant cells in the urine sediment. Nine cases were reported negative for malignant cells and one case was suspicious for malignancy. Of the malignant lesions, 37 cases were diagnosed as transitional cell carcinomas and the remaining 3 were squamous cell carcinomas. Histologic findings were correlated with the cytologic findings. The overall sensitivity was 80% and specificity was 100%.
