Aspiration Cytodiagnosis of Lid Tumors

Arch Ophthalmol. 1979;97(10):1907-1910. doi:10.1001/archopht.1979.01020020355014

• In five patients, specimens of discrete, subepidermal lid tumors were successfully aspirated with 22- to 24-gauge spinal needles and diagnosed cytologically. The simplicity, rapidity of diagnosis, and high accuracy of cytodiagnosis should make it a popular method for the evaluation of clinically puzzling subepidermal lid tumors.
