The hematolymphoid infiltrations are challenging lesions in endocrine organs and tissues. The fourth edition of WHO classification of tumors of endocrine organs and the fourth edition of WHO classification of tumors of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues are recently published. The updates in both fields include some new disease descriptions and prog- nostic markers. Our aim in this review article is to give practical diagnostic information about the most frequently seen hematolymphoid involvements of the pituitary gland, thyroid, and adrenal tissue. We designed the text in the order of organs and the contents according to the disease frequency. The pituitary gland and cellar region are the most frequently involved with Langerhans cell histiocytosis. Although it is very rare, Erdheim–Chester disease has recently been included in the classification and still needs more clear diagnostic definitions. Lymphoproliferative thyroid lesions and presentations create diagnostic problems for the pathologists. IGG4-related disease and its relation with thyroiditis is a new concept. There are many unknowns on pathobiology of the disease spectrum and discussion on defined diagnostic criteria of the IGG4-related thyroid diseases. The overlapping features of thyroiditis and primary thyroid lymphomas also create diagnostic difficulties. The frequently recognized primary hematolymphoid lesions of the endo- crine
