The fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of liver was performed on 90 cases. The diagnostic yield was 83.4%. The main indication of FNAC was hepatomegaly with abnormal ultrsonographic (USG) / computed tomographic (CT) findings. The USG guided FNA was very helpful in making cytological diagnosis of hepatic masses in 90% of cases. Among the hepatic lesions 23.3% were benign, 67.7% were malignant, 6.6% were non-representative and 2.2% were suspicious of malignancy. Metastatic tumours were the most common and constituted 70.4% while the hepatocellular carcinoma accounted for 26.2% of malignant liver lesions.
