The diagnosis of infectious mononucleosis in cytology is difficult due to its close resemblance to Hodgkin’s lymphoma and absence of any clinching feature of the disease. Here, we are presenting the cytological findings of two cases of atypical reactive hyperplasia of lymph nodes with a possibility of infectious mononucleosis. The diagnoses were further confirmed by peripheral blood smear and histopathological examination and heterophile antibody test.
