The diagnosis of lymphoma is dependent on the sampling and quality of the biopsy in which is provided to hematopathologists. With small biopsies being a new norm, it is important to be aware of the differential diagnosis and potential pitfalls. Here, we will discuss some of these difficult cases and why you should be aware of them. Also, when to encourage a larger excisional biopsy and some of the implications to such. Interesting cases will be reviewed as well as clinical pearls and new changes within diagnostic categories.
