Abstract

Primary diagnosis of lymphomas from ascitic fluid is rare. We report a case in which a patient being worked up as a case of carcinoma head of pancreas turned out to be a lymphoma on routine ascitic fluid examination and was further sub-classified as a CD 10+ B-cell lymphoma on flow cytometric analysis.
