Aspiration cytology of lymph node of a one-year old girl suffering from acute disseminated Langerhans cell histiocytosis revealed pleomorphic histiocytes and multinucleated giant cells, including Touton like giant cells. Histology of the same lymph node showed atypical histiocytes but no giant cell. We report this case because presence of Touton like giant cells in aspiration cytology smear of lymph node is a rare finding.
