A 44-year-old woman had a small nodule in the right armpit for a few weeks. The patient denied the presence of fever, weight loss, and night sweats. Physical examination found that the nodule was a lymph node, measuring 2 cm in diameter. It was movable and nontender. There were no additional superficial lymph nodes identified. The liver and spleen were not palpable. Peripheral blood examination revealed mild anemia with normal leukocyte differential and platelet count. The pathology of the right axillary lymph node biopsy is depicted in Figs. 69.1, 69.2, and 69.3.
