BACKGROUND: FNAC offers an invaluable and accurate initial diagnostic tool for the evaluation of salivary gland lesions .Keeping Histopathological diagnosis as gold standard sensitivity, specificity and diagnostic accuracy of FNAC was calculated. OBJECTIVES: 1. To analyse the clinical ,histological and cytological features of salivary gland lesions with Histological diagnosis. 2. To analyse the reasons for diagnostic pitfalls in cases that have cytohistological discrepancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective study of FNAC and subsequent histopathology of major salivary gland lesions performed in the Department of Pathology Coimbatore medical college from August 2018-July 2019. RESULTS: Out of 45 cases, Histopathological confirmation showed 9 cases as non neoplastic, 28 cases as benign and 8 cases as malignant. We found a good concordance between FNAC and Histology. There was a significant relationship between consistency, site and cellularity of lesion and benign vs malignant. CONCLUSION: FNAC is a safe initial diagnostic tool in distinguishing benign and malignant lesions. In the present study FNAC and Histopathology complemented each other for diagnosis.
