Gaucher-like cells (GLC) are sometimes indistinguishable from real Gaucher cells. GLC can be detected in various diseases. We present a 4.5 year old boy with massive cervical lympadenopathy and an intraabdominal mass mimicking lymphoma. Many GLC were seen in the fine needle aspiration material of an enlarged lymph node. Ziehl-Neelsen stain of the aspirate revealed many acid-fast bacteria in the GLC. Fine needle aspiration might provide valuable information in the evaluation of enlarged lymph nodes.

Keywords: Gaucher-like cells, Lymph node aspirate, Tuberculosis.
