Among 217 cases of male breast lesions subjected to fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC) over a period of nine years, three cases were found to be having neurilemomas, The review of literature reveals the first case of neurilemoma of male breast diagnosed by FNAC was reported in 1992. Very scanty literature is available on this rare tumour of male breast. The aspirates yielded cellular smears composed of clusters of spindle shaped cells and Verocay bodies. Histopathological examination of the excised masses confirmed the cytological diagnosis.
