Twelve cases of malignant germ cell tumours were diagnosed by Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) (9 cases) and crush preparation (3 cases) between January 1994 and October 1999. Five were intraabdominal, three intracranial, three testicular and one was from a supra-orbital mass. In all cases, the cytology showed features of a malignant germ cell tumour. In seven cases, subsequent histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis. In the other five, clinical correlation and serum levels of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and β-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-HCG) were useful in making the diagnosis.
