The aim of this paper is to give a rapid and coincise guide for the diagnostic procedures frequently used in internist's clinical practice. Thoracentesis, paracentesis, and arthrocentesis, were analysed as regards to indications, contraindications, procedure of execution and interpretation of findings. Addressed to the young physician, the present paper could also be useful as a rapid guide for the experienced physician which does not frequently use these procedures.
