This study presents the fine needle aspiration findings in 138 consecutive salivary gland aspirations over a period of 4 years. The parotid gland was the most commonly sampled. Chronic nonspecific sialadenitis was the most common lesion (37.68%) and pleomorphic adenoma the most common neoplasm (21.73%). No complications were encountered directly from the procedure. The study highlights some of the interesting findings and compares the present series with a few similar studies done in the past.
