Three hundred patients with oral cavity and jaw bone lesions were studied from the standpoint of the efficacy of fine needle aspiration cytology in their diagnosis. In all cases final diagnosis was established with the help of histopathology. There were 105 benign, 27 premalignant and 168 malignant lesions. A wide variety of benign lesions were seen and the diagnostic accuracy of aspiration cytology was found to be 97.14%. Out of a total of 27 premalignant lesions leukoplakia accounted for the maximum number of cases followed by dysplasia. The positive correlation of FNAC for premalignant lesions was 87.5%. Squamous cell carcinoma was the commonest encountered malignant lesion and the overall accuracy of the cytological diagnosis was 97.94%. Maximum number of insufficient aspirates were seen in the benign lesions (33.33%).
