Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) has
found great grounds in various areas to provide
accurate, rapid, painless and inexpensive mode of
rendering early diagnosis. Its marriage with imaging
technologies had broadened and widened its horizons
which are now virtually limitless. Bone and Soft tissue
tumors are quite suitable for diagnosis by FNAC. Not
only common but rare tumors can be easily diagnosed
by FNAC. Synovial sarcoma is a well defined clinical
and morphological entity. It is so named because of its
resemblance to developing synovial tissue under light
microscope.
