The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of imprint cytology in diagnosis of benign & malignant neoplastic conditions in various organs. Alcohol fixed slides were stained by rapid H & E stain. A total number of 52 cases were studied. There were 22 benign lesions and 30 malignant lesions with equal distribution in various-organs. The rate of correlation is better in malignant (90%), than in benign lesions (82.6%). Imprint cytology is extremely useful as a rapid diagnostic technique with high sensitivity and specificity.
