A 32-year-old man presented with hemolytic anemia and bulky periaortic pelvic lymphadenopathy. Core needle biopsy of the pelvic mass and excisional biopsy of the right inguinal lymph node were nondiagnostic. A transabdominal periaortic pelvic lymph node biopsy finally revealed diagnostic features, as shown in Figs. 80.1, 80.2, 80.3, 80.4, 80.5, 80.6, and 80.7.
