This study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of aspiration cytology in the diagnosis and classification of leprosy. A total of 130 suspected leprosy cases were evaluated for detailed cytological features. Histology was available in only 100 cases. Leprosy cases were classified according to Ridley - Jopling spectrum. On cyto-histological correlation in polar tuberculoid and polar lepromatous group 100% concordance was observed, whereas, it was 94.12% in borderline tuberculoid, 93.75% in borderline lepromatous and 50% in midborderline group. Overall diagnostic accuracy was 87.57%. Borderline group posed problem in sub classification, especially the midborderline.
