Fine-Needle Aspiration Biopsy of Cervicofacial Masses in Children

Fine-Needle Aspiration Biopsy of Cervicofacial Masses in Children Abstract Objective: To show the usefulness of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) in the diagnosis of cervicofacial masses in children. Design: Case series. Setting: Pediatric otolaryngology referral center; ambulatory and hospitalized patients. Patients: Seventeen pediatric (age, <18 years) patients with cervicofacial masses. Intervention: Fine-needle aspiration biopsy. Outcome Measures: Cytologic diagnosis, resolution of mass, and need for further surgical diagnosis or treatment. Results: Following FNAB, 10 patients underwent open surgery; in seven, the surgery was indicated based on FNAB diagnosis; in three, surgery provided diagnoses where FNAB was insufficient. Based on FNAB data, seven patients were observed without surgery. Conclusions: Fine-needle aspiration biopsy is a useful early step in diagnosing cervicofacial masses in children.(Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1995;121:533-536) References 1.
