We report a case of T-cell lymphoma presenting as ascites, omental thickening, and raised serum glycoprotein-125 (CA-125) and high-ascitic fluid adenosinedeaminase levels. This case was clinically suspected to be peritoneal carcinomatosis or peritoneal tuberculosis based on clinical, biochemical, and radiological features. However, effusion cytology, cell block, and immunohistochemistry confirmed this case as T-cell lymphoma. This revealed the role of effusion cytology and cell-block preparation with imunohistochemistry in the diagnosis. Diagn. Cytopathol. 2010. © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
