An attempt was made to perform fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) on testis. A total 50 patients having symptoms & signs related to testicular pathology were subjected to FNAC. Out of these 50 cases, 16 cases were of non-neoplastic (inflammatory) pathology, 25 cases of neoplastic pa thology and remaining 9 cases were of infertility. Out of 16 cases of non-neoplastic pathology, 2 had acute epididymo-orchitis, 2 had tubercular pathology and remaining 12 cases had chronic non specific inflammatory lesions. Out of 25 cases of neoplastic pathology 18 were of seminoma, 1 each of teratocarcinoma & embryonal cell carcinoma and in 5 cases smear was malignant but exact typing was not possible. Nine cases of infertility on which FNAC was performed showed that I had normal spematogenesis, 2 had maturation arrest and in 6 results were inconclusive
