Dermatopathic lymphadenopathy usually presents as enlarged superficial lymph nodes, most often involving the axillary or inguinal regions. Most patients have a chronic dermatopathy that precedes the development of dermatopathic lymphadenopathy. This condition can be confused with lymphoma in adults. There are very few case reports on cytological features of this disease in literature. We describe a case of dermatopathic lymphadenopathy in a 50-year-old female without any skin disease.
