A case of Kikuchi's lymphadenitis diagnosed by fine needle aspiration cytology (FNA) is reported. The aspirate showed reactive lymphoid cells and numerous histiocytes containing nuclear debris within their cytoplasm. There were foci of granular eosinophilic debris indicative of necrosis. Granulomas were not found. The diagnosis was later confirmed by biopsy of the node. The patient improved without treatment.
