One hundred and five cases of skeletal lesions were submitted for fine needle aspiration eytology (FNAC). Out of these 98 were further submitted to needle biopsy and 70 to open biopsy. Relative accuracy of FNAC with needle biopsy and open biopsy was analysed. The results were 81.9% correct in FNAC while it were 88.7% and 98.5% in cases of needle biopsy and open biopsy respectively. The usefulness of FNAC was in early diagnosis of malignant bone tumours.
