Three cases of Burkits lymphoma of breast diagnosed by fine needle aspiration are reported. The FNA smears contained monotonous population of small round cells with moderate amount of basophilic cytoplasm containing small vacuoles. Nucleus had a prominent nuclear membrane and multiple nucleoli suggesting the presence of Burkitt's lymphoma. FNA cytology was found to be quite reliable for arriving at the diagnosis ofBurkitt type lymphoma. Radical surgery was avoided in these cases because of FNAC.
