Abstract: The present randomized study was undertaken to study cytological features of non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions of enlarged lymph nodes by FNAC in 656 patients presenting with lymphadenopathy in the Postgraduate Department of Pathology of Government Medical College, Jammu over a period of three year. Tuberculous lymphadenitis, reactive hyperplasia, metastatic carcinoma, pyogenic lymphadenitis and lymphomas were seen in 52.3%, 37.2%, 3.8%, 1% and 2% respectively. However, a solitary case of Langerhans histiocytosis in a three year old child was reported over three years. Reactive hyperplasia was seen most often (74.5%) in first two decades of life, 58.9% tuberculous lymphadenitis in the second and third decades and 88% of metastatic carcinoma over 40 years of age. Cases of lymphoma were distributed in all age groups. Males showed preponderance of reactive hyperplasia, lymphoma and metastatic carcinoma, while tuberculous lymphadenitis showed a slight female preponderance. Cervical lymph nodes were involved most often in all types of lymphadenopathy.
