Role of alkaline phosphate (AP) in fine needle aspiration (FNA) smears was evaluated in two cases of osteosarcoma (OS). Clinicopathological features were reviewed. In first case of primary OS clinicoradioiogical features were equivocal and cytomorphology suggested a malignant round cell tumour. Staining forAP on FNA smear was negative. FNA provides fresh material fot enzyme studies, which might be helpful in the disputed cases.
