Fine needle aspiration cytology is a method of diagnostic procedure, being adopted more frequently in the diagnosis and management of breast tumours. We present the initial experiences with this technique in the women attending Ha wan Hospital, Benghazi. A total of 619 cases were studied of which there were 115 (18.6%) unsatisfactory smears, 184(29.7%) of fibroadenosis. 117(18.9%) of inflammatory smears. The results and the histological correlations are discussed.
