Objective: To investigate the feasibility of fine needle aspiration cytopathology in the diagosis of lymphoma. Methods: To compare cytopathology with histopathology of 72 lymphoma cases and analyse immunochemistry stain of 3 cases. Results: 61 of 72 cases were diagnosised as lymphoma in cytopathology, while 58 of 61 cases were diagnosised as lymphoma in histopathology. The sensitivity, specificity,accuracy, positive predictive value and negative predictive value rates of cytopathology were 89.2 % (58/65), 57.1 % (4/7), 86.1 % (62/72), 95.1 % (58/61), and 36.4 % (4/11) respectively. Conclusion: Fine needle aspiration cytopathology is significant to the diagnosis of lymphoma. It should greatly improve the accuracy of lymphoma diagnosis and make it possible to subclassify lymphoma, combined cytopathology with other auxilary detection. Source
