Abstract

Giant cell tumor of soft tissue is an uncommon neoplasm. To our knowledge, its cytopathology obtained using the fine-needle aspiration biopsy technique has not been previously described. We report an example of the fine-needle aspiration cytology of giant cell tumor of soft tissue in a 40-year-old woman, and correlate it with the corresponding tissue specimen.
