Fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the breast was performed in 198 patients; 158 benign and 8 malignant lesions were found, 24 samples were considered unsatisfactory and 8 suspicious. The cytological diagnosis was correlated with clinical follow-up and histological findings. The Author discusses the value of aspiration biopsy cytology in the clinical assessment of breast disease and describes the cytological appearances and diagnostic criteria in the major benign and malignant breast diseases.
