Abstract: Introduction: Lymph nodes (LNs) are an integral component of immune system and are affected by many pathological conditions manifesting most commonly as lymphadenopathy. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a safe alternative to excision biopsy, carried out as an out-patient procedure without anaesthesia. Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study of 263 patients of all age groups and both sexes presenting with palpable or deep lymph nodes in FNAC clinic of our institute over a period of 4 years to determine the pattern of disease affecting lymph nodes in our region. Study participants were subjected to standard FNA procedure after taking due consent. After studying the clinical data, Papanicolau (PAP) and Giemsa (MGG) stained smears were examined under the microscope. Results: Total 263 cases were examined. The age group of patients ranged from 7 months to 88 years with majority in the age group of 41 to 60 years (34.2%). 34.6% (91) cases were reported Reactive lymphadenitis, followed by 30.8% (81) cases of Metastasis, 27.4% (72) cases of Tuberculous lymphadenitis, 4.6% (12) cases of Lymphoma and 2.6% (7) cases of Suppurative lymphadenitis. Conclusion: FNAC is a simple, safe and inexpensive diagnostic procedure, especially in lymph node aspirates for establishing diagnosis and deciding appropriate management. Malignant lesions of lymph nodes with a primary metastatic tumor can be diagnosed easily by FNAC and can give a clue to the diagnosis of the primary tumor of origin.
