Abstract

We report one case of nodular sclerosing Hodgkin's disease with uncommon pseudosuppurative presentations in fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) samples and on histopathologic material. The criteria for cytologic diagnosis include atypical mononuclear cells and diagnostic SR cells in the purulent exudate. This lesion is considered a possible pitfall in FNAB cytology of Hodgkin's disease.
