Histological diagnosis of synchronous nodular tuberculosis and EBV-associated lymphoproliferative disorder. Biopsy of a cervical lymph node performed on day +36 showed effacement of the architecture due to numerous granulomas (low magnification (a), which were composed of epithelioid cells (b). Between the granulomas a polymorphous lymphoid infiltrate was noted containing blasts as well as plasma cells (c). The blasts were latently EBV-infected as shown in the immunohistochemical demonstration of EBNA2 (d).
