Transthoracic FNAC is direct approach to the diagnosis of pulmonary neoplasm. Our study emphasises the accuracy and simplicity of the technique with 60 (among 72) positive cases of carcinoma diagnosed without a complication. The diagnostic accuracy was 66.67% as a whole, however, it was significantly higher 85.2% in peripherally situated tumors. The procedure can be utilized on an outpatient basis obvitating the need of costly and relatively risky procedures. It can save valuable time and permit prompt institution of appropriate therapy.
