This report describes the cytologic findings in Q fever involving the liver in a 59‐yr‐old man. The fine‐needle aspiration findings are correlated with a surgical needle biopsy performed concurrently. Cytopathologists should include Q fever in their differential diagnosis of granulomatous inflammation. Ring granulomas, which can be seen in an aspiration biopsy, should suggest the diagnosis of Q fever. © 1992 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
