Abstract

Various types of superficial and deep-seated lesions may occur in the hand, causing concern to the patient and posing diagnostic dilemmas to the clinician. A study was undertaken to evaluate the utility of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) or scraping for the diagnosis of palpable lesions located in thehand. From a clinico-cytologic point of view, lesions were classified as superficial (n = 41) or deep-seated (n = 66), and aspirates were categorized into five groups: benign without specific cytohistologic diagnosis, benign with specific cytohistologic diagnosis, atypical, malignant without specific cytohistologic diagnosis, and malignant with specific cytohistologic diagnosis. Out of 107 cases with aspirates adequate for cytologic evaluation, 85 hadhistologic correlation; in 22 cases, histologic confirmation was deemed unnecessary because of unequivocal cytologic findings and/or clinical workup. Sensitivity was 90.9%, specificity 100%, and efficacy 98%. Based on these finings, we believe that FNA or scraping may help in the clinical workup ofpatients with either superficial or deep-seated lesions located in this anatomic region.
