Per rectal fine needle aspiration cytology of 328 cases prostatic lesions were performed. The lesions included benigh prostatic hyperplasia (201), adenocarcinoma (95), transitional cell carcinoma (1), inflammatory (20). There were 10 cases of granulomatous prostatitis of which 3 were of tuberculous in origin and one was allergic prostatis. Per rectal findings correlated well with cytology. Cy?ohistologic correlation was good except for two false negative cases. Serum acid phosphtase estimation and acid phosphatase staining on smears were of little help. However one case of transitional cell carcinoma was classified on the basis of negative acid phosphtase staining on the smear.
