We conclude that fine-needle aspiration cytology of the lung is an accurate diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of lung malignancies and is an excellent technique for distinguishing small cell carcinoma from other malignant neoplasms. It can be used with confidence to select treatment modalities and to avoid unnecessary surgeries in patients with lung malignancies.
