Kikuchis-Fujimoto’s is a benign, self-limiting, cervical lymphadenitis, fi ne-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) plays a very important role in the diagnosis and management of these patients. We present a case of 30-year-old female presenting with supraclavicular lymphadenopathy and fever, diagnosed as Kikuchis-Fujimoto’s lymphadenitis on FNAC with no recurrence or development of Lupus lymphadenitis even after 1-year of follow-up. Although Kikuchis-Fujimoto’s is a rare cause of lymphadenopathy, FNAC is an important tool in diagnosing this entity and differentiating from tubercular lymphadenitis and Lupus adenitis. Presence of cresentric nucleated histiocytes engulfed karryorrhectic debris and monocytoid cells aids in the diagnosing. A defi nitive diagnosis made on FNAC can avoid biopsy and unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in these patients. However, a look out for recurrence and development of Lupus with regular followup and serological examination is imperative.
