A 60-year-old man presented with a history of a right groin mass for about three years. A CT scan of the pelvis showed numerous enlarged nodes. Physical examination revealed generalized lymphadenopathy with prominent bilateral axillary and inguinal adenopathy. An inguinal lymph node biopsy was performed (Fig. 42.1). Subsequently, a peripheral blood smear (Fig. 42.2) and a bone marrow biopsy (Fig. 42.3) were also examined.
