AbstractA prospective study was carried out to investigate the efficacy of exfoliative cytology for the diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Exfoliated nasopharyngeal cells were collected from patients with a clinical suspicion of carcinoma by scraping the nasopharyngeal mucosa with a piece of silk wrapped around one end of a wooden stick. Ninety-eight patients were investigated in this manner, and the results of cytological investigation compared with the histological findings. The sensitivity of cytological investigation was 71% and the overall accuracy was 86%. The combined use of cytology and serology as a method of screening for nasopharyngeal carcinomas is discussed.
