A 63-year-old man presented with fever, night sweats, and weight loss for three weeks. Physical examination revealed bilateral cervical and axillary lymphadenopathy. There was also splenomegaly but no hepatomegaly. CT scan further identified enlarged lymph nodes in the mediastinum and retroperitoneum. A biopsy of left cervical lymph node was performed (Figs. 65.1, 65.2, and 65.3).
