Abstract: Lymphadenopathy is one of the commonest presentations in OPD with varied etiology ranging from inflammatory condition to malignant. The various modalities available for this are clinical evaluation, FNAC, open biopsy. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was introduced to reduce the number of excisional biopsies of lymph nodes. Although histopathological examination is considered to be gold standard in diagnosis especially in lymphomas, FNAC maybe the only tool for diagnosis and further management of the patients in some cases of metastatic malignancy. The aim is to study the histopathological and cytomorphological spectrum of lymph node lesions in 100 cases and to know the incidence of various lesions of the lymph node in different age groups. All the specimens of lymph node submitted for histopathological and cytomorphological examination will be included in the material to study. The relevant data of patient will be recorded in pre designed performa. Total of 100 cases would be included in the study.
