Abstract: Introduction: Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a widely accepted tool for preoperative diagnosis and management of salivary gland tumors. Due to the wide range of heterogenicity of salivary gland lesions and cytomorphological overlap, the Milan system for reporting salivary gland cytology (MSRSGC) was introduced to improve communication between cytopathologist and clinician. Materials and methods: A retrospective study was done for the period from January 2021 to December 2022. The study included a total of 104 salivary gland swellings. Clinical data, FNAC specimens, histological and clinical follow - up of cases were done. All the lesions were categorized according to the Milan system for reporting salivary glandcytopathology (MSRSGC). Results: out of the total of 104 cases included in the study histological follow - up was done wherever possible. Distribution of cases into six different categories were ND, NN, AUS, NB, SUMP, SM, M with a ROM of 25%, 4%, 16%, 5%, 33%, 75%, and 100% for each category. Conclusion: MSRSGC a six - category scheme which places salivary gland FNAC into well - defined categories limiting the possibilities of false negative and false positive results.
