Greetings Abdullah.

A peripheral blood film and chest x-ray, if not yet done would be recommended. The lymph node biopsy slides should be reviewed by the another pathologist, Meanwhile, if conclusion are not drawn by these; another lymph node biopsy would be necessary to reach to a conclusion. Following causes should be looked for;
1) Epstein-Barr virus,

2) cytomegalovirus

3) megaloblastic anemia

4) histoplasmosis,

5) tuberculosis

5) hyperthyroidism

6) sarcoidosis,

7) amyloidosis

8) lymphoma

9) leukemia

Lymphoma, leukemia, tuberculosis are the most common diagnosis for all of these symptoms.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.
