Clinical History and Examination
A 50-year-old male presented with right-sided inguinal swelling [Figure 1] for the past 1 year. Previously, the patient was clinically diagnosed as a case of tubercular lymphadenopathy and had received 6 months of antitubercular therapy without any noticeable improvement. Cutaneous examination revealed a single, mobile, firm, nontender, matted, irregular mass of size 6 Χ 6 cm in the right inguinal regional with normal overlying skin. Blood investigations showed peripheral eosinophilia (52%) with an absolute eosinophil count of 4500/mm3 and normal erythrocyte sedimentation rate. A regional fine needle aspiration cytology showed features of reactive lymphoid hyperplasia. The results of renal function tests, liver function tests, and routine urine tests were within normal limits, and chest radiography was unremarkable. Mantoux test was 5 × 5 mm.
A lesional biopsy revealed preserved architecture of lymphoid follicles with prominent germinal centers. Interfollicular areas showed prominence of eosinophils
and plasma cells along with the presence of an occasional multinucleate giant cell [Figure 2]. Eosinophils were also seen infiltrating into lymphoid follicles and the capsule, with proliferation of capillaries and venules [Figure 3]. Stains and cultures were negative for bacteria, fungi, and mycobacteria.
