Pseudolymphoma is a benign lymphocytic infiltrate that resembles cutaneous lymphoma histologically, clinically, or both.

Lymphoma cutis is the most important type of pseudolymphoma.[1]

Presentation[edit]

It manifests with diarrhoea, hepatosplenomegaly, moderate lymph node enlargement without histopathological changes and evidence of the reticulo-endothelial system involvement.[2]
