Kikuchi- Fujimoto disease (KFD) is an uncommon, benign self limiting condition, which presents as cervical lymphadenopathy in young women. Fine needle aspiration cytology can help in differentiating it from other disease like tuberculosis, SLE lymphadenitis and non hodgkin’s lymphoma. We present a case of KFD diagnosed on FNAC in a twenty five year old woman.
