Abstract
Lymphadenitis due to toxoplasma infection is not uncommon and should be considered in the diagnosis of unexplained lymphadenopathy at all sites, especially at the cervical region. We report four cases of toxoplasmosis diagnosed by cytologic, histologic and serologic tests. Fine needle aspiration cytologic diagnosis can help the diagnosis of toxoplasma lymphadenitis and eliminate unnecessary hospitalization or surgery.
Key Words: Aspiration biopsy, Fine-needle, Lymphadenitis, Toxoplasma
