Role of FNAC in Parotid Gland Tumours
AbstractThis study was conducted at Allama Iqbal Medical College/ Jinnah Hospital during 1998. Nineteen patients with parotid disease were aspirated. Most of the patients were male. A wide spectrum of diseases was diagnosed on FNAC. Most of the patients were diagnosed to have pleomorphic adenoma. The statistical analysis showed specificity of 83.33%. FNAC is a reliable procedure for initial evaluation in benign disorders. FNAC is superior to other investigations used for the diagnosis of salivary gland disease.
