Abstract

BACKGROUND: Lymphoepithelioid cell lymphoma (LCL) is a rare morphologic variant of peripheral T-cell lymphoma. Although their histopathologic and immunohistochemical findings are well known, the cytopathologic features have not been well documented. This report describes the fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) findings of a case of LCL.CASE: A 75-year-old woman presented with cervical, supraclavicular, axillary and mediastinal lymphadenopathy. FNAC of a cervical lymph node was performed. The smears contained a polymorphous infiltrate formed by abundant histiocytes disposed singly or in clusters, small and medium-sized to large atypical lymphoid cells and reactive cells, including eosinophils and plasma cells. Isolated capillary-sized vessels also were observed. Histopathologic and immunohistochemical examination confirmed the diagnosis of Lennert's lymphoma.CONCLUSION: Although histopathologic and immunohistochemical studies were required for a definitive diagnosis, the findings of FNAC in this case appeared distinctive and suggested the possibility of LCL.
