A 58-year-old man was admitted because of the finding of a large left inguinal mass. The patient had night sweats for several weeks before he discovered the inguinal mass. There were no other superficial lymph nodes palpable. The CT scan showed no enlargement of hilar, mediastinal or axillary lymph node, but he had bulky retroperitoneal and pelvic adenopathy. The inguinal lymph node was biopsied (Fig. 48.1). A bone marrow biopsy was performed subsequently (Fig. 48.2).
