Postarthroplasty histiocytic lymphadenopathy is a benign reactive sinus histiocytosis.
We report on the case of a 68-year-old woman presenting with pelvic postarthroplasty histiocytic lymphadenopathy after hysterectomy because of uterine carcinoma.
This unusual form of histiocytic lymphadenopathy should be included in the differential diagnosis of gynecologic oncology patients who have had joint replacements to avoid misdiagnosis of a neoplasm.
