Giant cell tumor of tendon seath (GCTTS) is slow-growing, well-circumscribed nodule arising from the synovial membrane lining cells. We studied FNA smears of a series of six cases. The cytologic pattern was diagnostic of GCTTS in all the six cases, which was confirmed by histopathologic examination. The cytologic findings suggesting a diagnosis of GCTTS include high cellularity, a large number of multinucleate giant cells, a prominent population of mononuclear cells occurring singly, and the presence of stromal hyalinisation, hemosiderin-laden macrophages, vacuolated cells and a few histiocytes in the background. Stromal hyalinisaton which was noted in 4 cases has not been yet described in cytology material.
