Liver aspiration in the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma in the Gambia.

By A Ajdukiewicz, A Crowden, E Hudson and C Pyne

Abstract

Fine needle aspiration was used for the cytological diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma in 151 Gambian patients. Of 133 with hepatic tumours a correct positive cytological diagnosis was obtained in 116 (87.2%). This simple test was a safe and accurate diagnostic procedure. It is particularly suitable for use in countries where medical resources are limited and hepatocellular carcinoma is prevalent
