Figure 1: FNA smear from 1.5 × 1.5 cm left cervical lymph node of 2 weeks duration in a 17-year-old adolescent Kuwaitiboy. The clinical diagnosis was suspicious of tuberculosis/lymphoma. Initial cytodiagnosis was reactive hyperplasia and reviewed cytodiagnosis was Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease. (a) Numerous Kikuchi histiocytes with crescentic nuclei and ingested cell debris (the count was 25 per 200 cells) are seen along with reactive lymphoid cells and apoptotic bodies (MGG ×400). (b) In the Papanicloaou-stained smears the count of Kikuchi histiocytes was 16 per 200 cells (×400)
