Abstract: A veterans' hospital-based retrospective, clinicopathological study was undertaken to evaluate fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in the diagnosis of male breast carcinoma. Two hundred and forty histologically proven cases of breast carcinoma spanning a period 17 yrs were identified and 13 of these were in males. Nine of these male patients had FNAC performed and were reported by the same cytopathologist (L.I.B.). In 8 of these cases FNAC was diagnostic of carcinoma. No material from FNA was obtained for diagnosis from one of these patients. We concluded that FNA is a useful technique in the diagnosis of male breast carcinoma.
