Introduction: Due to the increasing trend in gall bladder (GB) carcinoma in India, early diagnosis of GB lesion has become essential. Aim: It is to determine the accuracy of Ultrasonography (USG)-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and an attempt to classify the cytological material according to World Health Organization classification. Materials and Methods: This retrospective study for a span of 3 years was done in the Departments of Radiology and Pathology in Tertiary Teaching Hospital. US-guided FNAC of GB lesion and their histopathological finding were compared. Results: Sensitivity of US-guided FNAC was 98.6% and specificity 97.3%.
