Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was employed in 183 cases of clinically malignant scalp and underlying bone tumours from July, 1984 to December, 1994. The age of the patients ranged from 2 years to 89 years. There were 68 benign and 115 malignant lesions. Only the malignant lesions are analysed in the present series. The cytological findings correlated with the histopathological analysis in 94.7% of cases. There was no false positive report. The cytological analysis helped the neurosurgeons to arrive to a quick pre-operative diagnosis which help early treatment avoiding open surgical biopsy in this vital area. Very scanty literature is available on FNAC of this region.
