    In a series of 226 cases of lymphadenopathy in which an initial histological diagnosis of reticulum cell sarcoma was reviewed in a reference laboratory this interpretation was confirmed in 165 cases (73%).

The conditions most frequently confused with reticulum cell sarcoma were Hodgkin's disease (particularly its ordinary form) and metastatic tumours.
