The orbit is a common location for various disease processes presenting as mass lesions such as inflammatory and infectious diseases, cysts, various primary and secondary neoplasms. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is considered as a reliable and relatively safe preliminary diagnostic tool before attempting any invasive procedure.To evaluate the role of fine needle aspiration (FNAC) as a diagnostic tool in cases of orbital and ocular adnexal masses. Cytological findings were correlated with histopathological diagnosis wherever possible.FNAC was performed in 29 patients of different age groups presenting with orbital and ocular adnexal masses. Patients were evaluated clinically and investigated by non-invasive techniques before fine needle aspiration of the masses. Smears were analyzed by a cytologist in all cases. Further, results of cytology were compared with the histopathological diagnosis.
