Abstract

[Abstract]


Tubercuous lymphadenitis and Non Hodgkins’ Lymphoma are common in India. As both diseases can occur in elderly persons there is a definite chance of co-existence of both diseases; but that coexistence has not been reported. Here we present a unique case in an elderly woman who had synchronous double pathology of tuberculosis (TB) and Diffuse Large B cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) of the lymph nodes.

 

 

Key words:- lymph nodes, tuberculosis (TB), Diffuse Large B cell Lymphoma (DLBCL).
