Sixty six patients, clinico-radiologically suspected to be having lung cancer were subjected to rigid bronchoscopic examination. Bronchial washings, brushings, punch biopsy (whenever possible), pleural fluid (if there was effusion) and post-bronchoscopic sputa (2-4 samples) were collected. The positive diagnosis of lung cancer by single specimen examination like sputum, washing, brushing, pleural fluid and biopsy was 57.6%, 33.3%, 56.1%, 4.5% and 35.2% respectively. Multiple cytologic study raises the detection to 68.2%. When cytology was combined with histopathology the positivity rate went up to 72.7% in bronchoscopically visible tumours cytology and histopathology studies in combination yield 91.4% positive disgnosis.
