Pleural effusion in 168 suspected tuberculous patients was studied by cytological examination as well as sputum for acid-fast bacilli by Zeihl-Neelsen stain and culture in Lowenstein-Jensen medium; pleural fluid smear for acid fast bacilli staining and culture, pleural biopsy and response to anti-tuberculous therapy. The cytological diagnosis of tubercular pleural effusion on hematoxylin and eosin and Papanicalaou stain were correlated and confirmed with findings of other methodology.
