FNAC is an important diagnostic tool in the evaluation of lymphadenopathy in HIV positive patients. Thirty-six human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive patients with lymphadenopathy were subjected to fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) over a period of 2 years. The maximum number of cases was reported in the age group of 21 to 30 years. Majority of the patients were males. The maximum number of cases had tuberculosis (58.3%) followed by reactive lymphadenitis (36.1%), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (2.7%) and acute suppurative lymphadenitis (2.7%).
