Metastatic tumor deposits in the umbilicus are not uncommon. Fine-needle aspiration cytology is an important, simple, cost-effective diagnostic tool for delineating the value of umbilical nodules. However, only a few reviews and case reports of diagnosis of umbilical metastases by fine-needle aspiration cytology are available. A review of 52 cases of umbilical nodule aspirates over a 16-yr period forms the basis of this brief report.
