This study was based on the evaluation of 140 fine-needle aspirations from gynecologic lesions. Cytologic criteria for the diagnosis of benign and malignant lesions and cellular changes due to irradiation and chemotherapy are presented. For accurate evaluation of fine-needle aspiration specimens from the pelvis, the exact location of the sampling must be known, clinical data must be available, and the pathologist must have an intimate knowledge of anatomy, histology and pathology of benign and malignant lesions in this area. Fine-needle aspiration cytology provided a high degree of accuracy in the diagnosis of gynecologic lesions.
