Twenty cases of ovarian neoplasm (12 non-coelomic and 8 coelomic and 8 epithelial tumors) have been subjected to fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). FNAB yielded adequate material in all those cases and it was possible to accurately classify the tumors in 16 cases (80%). In eight cases of non coelomic epithelial neoplasms preoperative cytological diagnosis helped in conservative surgery. Cytological features of different groups of ovarian tumors are to some extent characteristic. FNAB is a relatively safe and reliable diagnostic procedure.
