A total of 105 cases of soft tissue tumours were studied by fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). All the cases were corroborated by histological examination. Sixty five were benign, 33 were malignant and 7 cases were inconclusive. On histopathological examination, accuracy rate of benign tumours was found to be 90.6% and that of malignant tumours was 91.3%. The overall accuracy rate was 90.8%. So FNAC is to be considered as an useful cost effective procedure for the diagnosis of soft tissue tumours.
