To evaluate the role of FNAC in the diagnosis of vertebral body lesions, FNAC under image intensifier control was carried out on 25 cases in which the diagnosis was not clear on X-rays/ CT scan examination. Comparison was made between the provisional, cytological and the final diagnosis. The study confirmed the usefulness of FNAC in all regions of spine from C 6 to L 5 with accuracy of over 75%. The procedure was quick, inexpensive and could be performed as an outdoor procedure with minimal complications.
