Introduction: Lymphadenopathy is a common clinical problem, usually benign, but malignancy may be associated. To confirm the diagnosis often required a biopsy of lymph nodes. Methods: All patients with cervical lymphadenopathy, more than 4 weeks and size more than 1cm were included in the study and a biopsy were done and sent for histopathological study. Results: Out of total 220 patients, 54.5% (n=120) were males & 45.5% (n=100) were females. The mean age was 38.9±1.02 years & the maximum number of patients were adults (50%). The most common cause of cervical lymphadenopathy was reactive hyperplasia (51.8%) followed by granulomatous infection (17.3%). however, in older adults, carcinoma was also a common cause of cervical lymphadenopathy (40%). Conclusion: The most common histopathological diagnosis of cervical lymph node biopsies in central India were reactive disease and granulomatous infections.

Rhinoscleroma is a rare chronic infection with granuloma formation which is
precipitated due to recurrent chronic sinusitis. Clinically patient presents with mass or
swelling in upper airways most commonly in nose with obstructive features. Though there are
many tests for its diagnostic evaluation, histology still holds the mainstream modality for its
confirmatory diagnosis.
