Lymphadenopathy simulating malignant lymphoma
We include in this chapter a miscellaneous group of conditions which cause lymphadenopathy and which may simulate malignant lymphoma clinically and sometimes pathologically. Similar conditions that have a recognized infective cause have been included in Chapter 2. Following previous custom (Butler, 1969; Dorfman and Warnke, 1974; Robb-Smith, 1947) we have divided these conditions into three groups according to the basic histologic pattern observed in the affected lymph node (Table 3.1).
