  author={Rog{\'e}rio Borghi B{\"u}hler and Leandro Ricardo Mattiola and J. Leroy and G. Pinheiro and Ant{\^o}nio S{\'e}rgio Fava},
Positive correlation with histological results occurred in 44 cases (75,86%) and negative correlation occurred in 14 cases (24,14%). Considering the ability of fine-needle aspiration puncture in diagnoses neoplasm, independently of histological type, there was a positive correlation in 49 cases (84,48%) and a negative correlation in nine cases (15,52%). The sensibility was of 82,4%, specificity of 100%, positive predictive value of 100%, negative predictive value of 43,8% and accuracy of 84,4…

Diagnostic challenges in fine needle aspiration cytology of salivary gland lesions.

FNAC of the salivary gland is a useful technique that can provide a preliminary assessment on which management decision can be based and be combined with clinical and radiological findings to identify the discrepancies that contribute to false diagnoses.

A systematic review and meta-analysis of the diagnostic accuracy of fine-needle aspiration cytology for parotid gland lesions.

It is not possible to provide a general guideline on the clinical usefulness of FNAC for parotid gland lesions owing to the variability in study results, and there is a need to improve the quality of reporting and study designs to remove or assess the impact of bias.



Fine‐needle aspiration of parotid gland lesions

It is concluded that fine needle aspiration biopsy of parotid gland masses, with the observation of certain caveats, is a helpful adjunctive test for diagnosis and treatment planning.

Fine needle aspiration biopsy cytology of major salivary glands.

This study documents that needle aspiration biopsy cytology of the salivary glands is accurate, simple, rapid, inexpensive, well tolerated and harmless to the patient.

An audit of surgery of the parotid gland.

This small series with a limited follow-up suggests that diseases of the parotid gland can be managed by general surgeons with an interest in this field, although fine needle aspiration and ultrasonic scan may be helpful, the decision to operate should be made on clinical grounds.

Fine‐needle aspiration biopsy in the diagnosis of parotid gland lesions: Evaluation of 438 biopsies

FNAB offers valuable information about the type of parotid lesion, but the clinician must know how to interpret the cytologic statement, and the decision to use operative and other treatment should not be based solely on the result of FNAB.

Fine needle aspiration biopsy of salivary gland, 1985-1995.

FNAB has an impact on the treatment of salivary gland masses and the data on its ability to distinguish between lesions requiring surgery or not are encouraging.

Fine‐needle aspiration biopsy of salivary glands

In patients with primary and metastatic neoplasms involving the salivary glands, fine-needle aspiration aids the surgeon in mapping the extent of the surgical procedure and in preoperatively preparing the patient.

[Fine needle aspiration in the cytologic diagnosis of swellings in the parotid and submandibular regions. Cytologic-histologic correlations in 49 cases].

In this series all cases of malignant neoplasia were correctly diagnosed and the authors consider that it plays an important role in the preoperative diagnosis of salivary gland pathologies.

Needle aspiration biopsy of major salivary gland tumors: Its value

D diagnostic error or difficulty in clinically localizing the tumor to the salivary gland was encountered in 64 patients with parotid tumors and 12 patients with submandibular tumors, thus enabling both immediate and correct decision‐making concerning subsequent management to be undertaken.


Critical analysis of cytologic reports from aspiration biopsy of salivary glands in 652 cases showed that positive diagnosis had been made in 92 per cent of the cases with tumour. In 8 per cent of

Punção aspirativa por agulha fina em tumores cervicais

Results confirm the high index of success diagnosis of FNAB described in the literature, confirming that this is a helpful method in diagnostic of neck lump.
