Background & Aims: Lymphadenopathy is one of the commonly encountered clinical presentation and the early targets for aspiration, therefore providing an important clue towards the diagnosis to find out the underlying etiology.
Materials & Method: The present cross-sectional prospective study was conducted in the tertiary care hospital in the North India among 201 lymphadenopaty patients on whom fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was performed after the informed consent.
Results: In the currnt study, majority of the patients were male (52.73%) with male-to female ratio of 1.1:1. The age group ranged from 1 to >80 years with majority of the patients in the age group of 21 to 30 years followed by 0 to 10 years and least in >80 years. Non-neoplastic cases were 121, neoplastic cases were67, and inadequate were 13 of the total 201 cases.
Conclusion: FNAC of the enlarged lymph node yields an important diagnostic clue to arrive the final diagnosis.
