ABSTRACT
Three cases of subacute necrotizing lymphadenitis diagnosed by fine needle aspiration(FNA) of enlarged lymph nodes are reported. The FNA smears contained randomly activated lymphoid cells, necrotic debris and histiocytes. The same patterns were found in subsequently examined excised lymph nodes from these cases. The differential diagnosis of this entity is discussed and the value of preparing FNA cell blocks and accompanying AFB stain with culture is emphasized.
Key Words: Necrotizing lymphadenitis; Fine needle aspiration cytology
