The cytopathology of these masses encompass a variety of changes that provide insight into the underlying condition associated with HIV. Aim of the present study was to analyze the cytological patterns of lymph node lesions in HIV/AIDS patients by Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) and correlate its findings with serum CD4 counts.Method: A total 75 cases of all genders and age, already diagnosed as seropositive by ELISA and presented with lymphadenopathy of ≥1 cm were studied in the Department of Pathology by FNAC during the period of 1 and half year.
