61 patients were included in this study from October 1998 to May 2001. 34 cases were adnexal masses and 27 cases were uterine masses. All these 61 patients were subjected to a transabdominal or transvaginal FNAC using a 22 gauge lumber puncture needle and 10 ml. syringe. There were no complications except mild pain in 3.27% of the cases. The correlation of the cytological and histological diagnosis in benign adnexal masses was 85.7% and 73.3% in malignant adnexal masses. The sensitivity and specificity of FNAC in diagnosis of FNAC in diagnosing malignant adnexal mass was 100%. The specificity of FNAC to exclude malignancy in a patient with a uterine smooth muscle tumor is 100%.
