A 64-year-old male presented to the surgical out-patient department with multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the neck and axillae. As a routine practice in India, this patient was worked up on the lines of generalized lymphadenopathy with a provisional diagnosis of tuberculosis and lymphoma. The report of fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) came as a surprise and on further work-up it turned out to be that the patient had disseminated neuroendocrine tumor from an unknown primary.
