Figure 7: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma: lymphoblastic (LB). A 5-year-old boy had 3 × 3 cm bilateral cervical and axillary lymphadenopathy. FNAC and histopathological diagnosis: NHL: LB. ICC: CD3+, CD20–, and Tdt+. FNA smears from axillary lymph nodes showed: (a) Uniform population of lymphoblasts with increased mitotic activity (MGG × 400). (b) The lymphoblasts displayed a hand-mirror cell configuration (MGG × 1000). (c) The nuclear chromatin was finely stippled in lymphoblasts (Pap × 1000). (d-f) The neoplastic cells in cell block preparation were (d) positive for CD3 (×400), (e) negative for CD20 (400), and (f) positive for Tdt (1000)
