The staging and diagnostic values of the bilateral bone marrow aspiration and biopsy were evaluated in 36 Patients with malignant disease. The presence of tumor cells in the bone marrow examination was noticed in 11 Patients with various cancers including 6 patients with lung cancer(l with small cell cancer), 2 pati- ents with breast cancer, I patient with stomach cancer, 1 patient with rectal cancer and 1 patient with prostate cancer. The bone marrow aspirate only, biopsy only and both of them showed tumor cell in and 4 patients respectively. The number of patients who revealed tumor cells were 3 in the unilateral(one site) sspirate and became 5 in the bilateral(two sites) aspi."ates, and 8 in the unilateral biopsy and became 10 in the bilateral biopsies. One patient without tissue diagnasis was diagnostic by bone marrow examination. These findings suggest that the bilateral bone marrow aspiration and biopsy is easy and safe way to have tissue diagnosis and should be routinely performed for the diagnosis and .staging of advanced malignant disease suggestive bony metastasis.
