Figure 1: FNA smears from the retro-auricular swelling (LN) and peripheral blood smear (PS) in a 58-year-old man, known to be suffering from CLL. Cytodiagnosis was NHL (small cell type)/CLL. ICC findings were CD20+, CD3–, and CD5+. (a, b) FNA smear from the cervical lymph node. (a) Monotonous lymphoid cell population, slightly larger than RBCs (MGG × 1000). (b) Clumping of chromatin is coarse (Pap × 1000). (c-f) Peripheral blood smear. (c) CLL cells similar in morphology to lymph node aspirate (MGG × 1000). (d) CLL cells are positive for CD20 (×1000). (e) CLL cells are positive for CD5 (x1000). (f) CLL cells are CD3– (×400)
