The article focuses on the issue concerning malignancy mimicry of nodal benign hyperplastic mesothelial cells in lymph nodes. It discusses the case of a 74-year-old Hispanic man who underwent an incidental mediastinal lymph node biopsy at the time of aortic and mitral valve replacement surgery. It is advisable that pathologists should be aware of the malignancy mimicry of nodal benign hyperplastic mesothelial cells to avoid administering inappropriate treatments.
