Tuberculosis is the prototype of the various granulomatous diseases consisting of epithelioid cells. Epithelioid cells can also be seen in neoplastic conditions like Hodgkin's disease (HD) and Lennert's lymphoma. The presence of epithelioid cells on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) smears may sometime lead to overdiagnosis of tuberculosis if careful search for other abnormal cells is not done. We report here two cases of Hodgkin's disease (lymphocytic and/or histiocytic (L & H) predominance) which were misdiagnosed as tuberculous lymphadenitis on cytological examination.
