There is a method of RT-PCR without RNA extraction.

Biotechniques and the author os Bob Klebe. If you check this out and dont
be carefull to retain RNA. IE miss out RNAsin and wait a couple of minutes
before doing the PCR then it may work.

Thi wil eliminate the need to extract the DNA.

There are lots of in-situ PCR methods you could try a search for.

could you give us more details of the experiment and we could narrow it
down a bit..
