Abstract

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma accounts for less than 10% cases of all lymphomas. It is a distinct category of large cell lymphomas that shows strong expression of CD30. The reproducibility of ALCL on the morphological ground is poor and at times it may mimic other non-lymphoid malignancies. The cytomorphology of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is distinctive yet variable. Till date only few cases have described the cytologic findings of ALCL. We here present a case of ALCL who presented to us with cervical lymphadenopathy and high grade fever.
