Salivary Gland fine needle aspiration (FNA) is often challenging and a precise classification of the lesion is not
possible in many cases. This presentation will teach how to best report the cytology findings in difficult cases and how to
classify the lesions in broad categories when a precise classification is not possible.
Provide an overview of classic findings in salivary gland fine needle aspiration (FNA) including those of non-
neoplastic and neoplastic lesions. Thereafter, a series of challenging cases with histologic correlation will be presented, which
will include a discussion on the differential diagnosis and on useful ancillary techniques required for classification.
Summarize with the most common causes of false negative and false positive diagnosis in salivary gland FNAs
followed by a summary on how to report the FNA findings in order to best guide patient management.
