Dr. Raj Laxmi Sharma and Dr. Neeraj Pancholi
In the diagnosis of salivary gland tumours FNAC is a widely used, safe inexpensive and relatively non traumatic procedure that can quickly provide important information. It is a well-accepted method in the preoperative evaluation in most of head and neck tumours. The aim of the study was to evaluate the spectrum of salivary gland tumours in tertiary care centre by using FANC. Total 208samples were collected from salivary gland swelling in which 74 benign and 46 malignant tumours were reported. Pleomorphic adenoma were most commonly found benign and mucoepidermoid carcinoma were most commonly found malignant lesions in the study. It is concluded that Fine-needle aspiration cytology is a good preliminary, inexpensive, sensitive and well tolerated technique for the preoperative diagnosis of most of the salivary gland tumours Along with clinical and radiological finding.
