Abstract :

Ameloblastoma is the most common odontogenic tumor of the jaw. Preoperative fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is one of diagnostic modalies in establishing diagnosis of ameloblastoma. Until present time, diagnostic accuracy of FNAB in ameloblastoma of the jaw had not been determined. The aim of this study is to determine the accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of FNAB in ameloblastoma.Histopathology archives of jaw bone lesions between January 2005 and December 2007 in Pathology Department Dr.Soetomo Hospital Surabaya were retrieved. One hundred and ninety two cases of jaw bone lesions were collected. Preoperative FNAB results were available for 65 cases. Retrospective review of 65 consecutive preoperative FNAB slides was compared with the corresponding histopathology diagnosis. The accuracy of FNAB in ameloblastoma was 76.9%, with sensitivity and specificity value were 53.1% and 100% respectively. Despite the low sensitivity value, FNAB had sufficient diagnostic accuracy, thus could be considered in preoperative diagnosis of ameloblastoma.
