Dermatopathic lymphadenopathy usually presents with multiple enlarged lymph nodes. It is often seen in patients with skin diseases with either exfoliative or eczematoid inflammatory erythrodermas. Multiple enlarged lymph nodes usually point to the diagnosis of lymphoma. Fine-needle aspiration cytology helps in reaching the correct diagnosis at the preliminary stage. There are very few case reports on cytological features of this disease in literature. Here, we describe a case of dermatopathic lymphadenopathy in a 15-year-old female with subtle skin disease.
