Background: Lymphadenopathy is a common clinical problem in our country among all age groups and in both sexes. In this study an attempt has been made to evaluate the clinical presentation and diagnosis of peripheral lymphadenopathy, which is commonly encountered in medical wards and diagnostic value of FNAC has been evaluated.. Methodology: This hospital-based descriptive study was done in thirty adult cases, of clinically apparent peripheral lymphadenopathy of at least more than two weeks of duration. Study was conducted over a period of 6 months from July, 2005 to December, 2005 in inpatients and outpatients of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital. After thorough examination, fine needle aspiration from several accessible enlarged lymph node groups were taken and sent for cytopathological examination and later biopsy of the significantly enlarged lymph node from the same anatomical region was performed and was sent for histopathological examination.. Results: Cytopathological study was ...
ICD-10 A18.2 is tuberculous peripheral lymphadenopathy (A182). This code is grouped under diagnosis codes for certain infectious and parasitic diseases.
Conclusions A significant proportion of patients with IMHL were found to have a diagnosis of reactive lymphadenopathy. With a pathological cause only being found in a minority of cases the appropriateness of EBUS-TBNA to investigate these patients could be questioned.. Our results found a significantly higher prevalence of reactive lymphadenopathy than previously published data; Evinson et al. reported this diagnosis 48% of patients and the REMEDY trial reported reactive lymphadenopathy in 5% of patients.. The detection of IMHL and its burden on the health service is likely to increase with increasing use of CT. Due to this a large multi-centred prospective study of patients with IMHL would be advisable to further investigate what the most appropriate strategy to manage these patients should be. ...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a newly recognized disorder, characterized by massive IgG4+ lymphocyte and plasma cell infiltration, storiform fibrosis, causing enlargement, nodules or thickening of the various organs, simultaneously or metachronously. Involvement of the gastrointestinal tract is very rare and can be presented as a diffuse wall thickening or polyp or mass-like lesion. Up to now, there have been reported only a few cases of isolated gastric IgG4-RD. We present an unusual case of IgG4-RD of the stomach with involvement of the regional lymph nodes, clinically manifested as a gastric cancer with related pyloric stenosis. The patient underwent distal gastrectomy, omentectomy and lymph node dissection. The postoperative serum IgG4 level was increased. The diagnosis was confirmed by immunohistochemical study. In the most of the reported cases there was not sufficient data about the regional lymph nodal status, although the majority of the patients had been operated with presumptive diagnosis

The body has approximately 600 lymph nodes, but only those in the submandibular, axillary or inguinal regions may normally be palpable in healthy people. Lymphadenopathy refers to nodes that are abnormal in either size, consistency or number. There are various classifications of lymphadenopathy, but a simple and clinically useful system is to classify lymphadenopathy as generalized if lymph nodes are enlarged in two or more noncontiguous areas or localized if only one area is involved. Distinguishing between localized and generalized lymphadenopathy is important in formulating a differential diagnosis. In primary care patients with unexplained lymphadenopathy, approximately three-fourths of patients will present with localized lymphadenopathy and one fourth with generalized ...
On examination Fareed appeared well. His height (170 cm, just above 50th centile) and weight (63 kg, just below the 75th centile) were recorded. There was no pallor, jaundice or petechiae. His pharynx was a little inflamed and he had mildly enlarged tonsils without exudate. A 2.5-cm lymph node was palpable in the left posterior triangle of the neck. This was firm, mobile and mildly tender, but there was no inflammation or induration of the overlying skin. There were no other palpable nodes in the neck, supraclavicular fossa, axillae or groin and no hepatosplenomegaly.. After considering the clinical presentation and examination findings, a diagnosis of reactive lymphadenopathy was made. In the absence of any signs of significant bacterial infection, supportive care was recommended. A throat swab was sent to rule out Group A streptococcal infection. In view of the 2.5 cm lymph node, review was planned in 3 weeks.. ...

Doctors help you with trusted information about Pregnancy in Hiv: Dr. Cannon on hiv in pregnancy lymphadenopathy: Having several small lymph nodes in the neck is common in many people and not necessarily abnormal. The lab tests you had are very accurate, so HIV is not a possible cause (and HIV doesnt cause lymph node enlargement in only one area like the neck) Probably not hepatitis, mono, or EBV either. If you otherwise feel well, probably nothing is wrong. Discuss with your doctor.
Lymphadenopathy means swelling of the lymph nodes or glands. Lymphadenopathy can occur in just one area of the body, such as the neck. Or it may affect lymph nodes throughout the body. The cervical lymph nodes, found in the neck, are the most common site of lymphadenopathy.

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare, benign, and predominantly nodal disease that most commonly presents as bilateral, painless cervical lymphadenopathy; although inguinal, axillary, mediastinal, and hilar lymphadenopathy has also been reported. Apart from nodal involvement, RDD has extranodal manifestations involving bone, soft tissue, and liver as well as constitutional symptoms of fever, night sweats, and weight loss, which make it reasonable to rule out the infectious, autoimmune, and malignant conditions as the differential diagnosis. We herein report a case of RDD affecting only the mediastinal and hilar region in an 83-year-old woman.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Disseminated tuberculosis presented with mediastinal lymphadenopathy, nodular thickening of pleura and liver involvement in a diabetic patient. AU - Chen, Yi Jen. AU - Chen, Chang-Wen. AU - Hsiue, Tzuen-Ren. PY - 2007/12/1. Y1 - 2007/12/1. N2 - Tuberculosis can involve many organs and have a broad spectrum of image presentation. It may resemble malignant diseases and thus confuse the judgment of the clinician. We report a 60-year-old diabetic woman suffered from chronic cough for 2 years and whose computed tomography scan revealed multiple pleural nodules with mediastinal lymphadenopathy and multiple liver masses. We approached this case as malignant disease initially but found it to be a systemic tuberculosis infection after a series of examinations. Tuberculosis may have radiological presentation like malignant disease. Physicians should consider tuberculosis as a possibility for those patients with underlying diseases, which can potentiate tuberculosis infection.. AB - ...
Introduction: Kimuras disease (KD) is an allergic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology endemic in Orientals. Kimuras disease was first mentioned by Kimm and Szeto in China in 1937. Kimuras disease is commonly encountered in Asia and is mostly reported in Japan, China, Singapore and Honkong. However, only a few cases have been reported in the Indian subcontinent. Case Report: A case of Kimuras disease in a young male managed by surgery is reported in addition to a literature review. Conclusion: Diagnosis is made on the basis of histopathological analysis, clinical presentation, and laboratory investigations. Long term follow-up is required as Kimuras disease is prone for recurrence.

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is an uncommon pathologic condition of unknown ethiology with an idiopathic proliferation of the hystiocytes. It is generally presented with massive bilateral hypertrophy of the cervical lymph nodes. But other lymph nodes may also be involved. Approximately, 30% of these patients have extra nodal mass or lesion with different signs or symptoms depending on localization. We present two male siblings with Rosai-Dorfman disease who have classical cervical lymphadenopathy associated with progressive neurosensorial hearing loss and dural-based intracranial lesions.
Lymphadenopathy is a common radiological finding in many thoracic diseases and may be caused by a variety of infectious, inflammatory, and neoplastic conditions. This review aims to describe the patterns of mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathy found in benign diseases in immunocompetent patients. Computed tomography is the method of choice for the evaluation of lymphadenopathy, as it is able to demonstrate increased size of individual nodes, abnormalities of the interface between the mediastinum and lung, invasion of surrounding fat, coalescence of adjacent nodes, obliteration of the mediastinal fat, and hypo- and hyperdensity in lymph nodes. Intravenous contrast enhancement may be needed to help distinguish nodes from vessels. The most frequent infections resulting in this finding are tuberculosis and fungal disease (particularly histoplasmosis and coccidioidomycosis). Sarcoidosis is a relatively frequent cause of lymphadenopathy in young adults, and can be distinguished from other diseases - ...
Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease is a rare, benign cause of lymphadenopathy that is often associated with fever, night sweats, and weight loss. The clinical and laboratory manifestation of Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease are similar to those of lymphoma, tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and it is often mistaken for these disorders. Definitive diagnosis is accomplished by lymph node biopsy. Awareness of Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease among clinicians and pathologists is essential to avoid misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment of patients with this self-limited disorder.
Conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (C-TBNA) has been proven to be a safe, minimally invasive, and cost-effective technique in establishing the diagnosis of mediastinal pathologies. We studied the success of C-TBNA in our community practice, in patients with mediastinal lymphadenopathies. The technique of C-TBNA was learned solely from the literature, videos, and by practicing on inanimate models during hands-on courses. Conventional TBNA, with 21- and/or 19-gauge Smooth Shot Needles, was performed on consecutive patients with undiagnosed mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Fifty-four patients (38 men), mean age 56.9±11.8 years, underwent C-TBNA. Thirty-three patients had nodes ,20mm. The final diagnoses were malignancy,29; sarcoidosis, 9; reactive lymph nodes, 15; and tuberculosis, 1. The final diagnosis was established by C-TBNA in 27. The exclusive diagnostic yield of TBNA was 42.5% (n: 23). Nodal size had an impact on outcome (P=0.002), whereas location did not (P=0.82). C-TBNA was ...

Clinical lymphadenopathies are subjected to fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC) for diagnosing not only benign lesions but also malignant ones, as the first diagnostic procedure. While the diagnostic reliability in metastatic carcinoma is high, it is difficult to differentiate malignant lymphoma from reactive conditions. We evaluated the diagnostic reliability of FNAC in lymphadenopathy, and discuss the diagnostic limitation and its place in clinical practice in this study, Over 8 years from January 1988, FNAC of 1,216 lymphadenopathies were analyzed and among them 170 cases were compared with histopathology. The results are as follows. 1. Of ail the cases, 890 cases(73.2%) were diagnosed cytologically as benign, 312 cases(25.7%) as malignant, and 14 cases(1.1%) as unsatisfactory material. Reactive hyperplasia was diagnosed in 585 cases(65.7%) of the benign lesions, and among the malignant diseases, metastatic carcinoma was diagnosed in 248 cases(79.5%), and malignant lymphoma in 62 ...
Lymph node. Light micrograph of a section through a healthy human lymph node. The follicles (oval, purple) are the regions in which B-lymphocyte white blood cells proliferate. Surrounding the lymph node is a collagenous capsule (pink, at left). This supportive tissue extends into the node as a trabecula (pink). Lymph nodes are kidney-shaped organs into which the fluid from body tissues drains and is filtered. The nodes are packed with white blood cells that destroy disease-causing microorganisms within the fluid. The granular appearance of the tissue is caused by the presence of thousands of lymphocyte white blood cells. Magnification: x400 at 35mm size. - Stock Image P290/0025

There is only one large study in English which adequately answers this question all other relevant reports being case studies or small case series. Uehara et al show that particularly in children age 3 20 months BCG site redness or crust formation was frequently associated with Kawasaki disease. They also showed that the prevalence of BCG site changes was greater than that of cervical lymphadenopathy. The sensitivity of BCG skin changes in Kawasaki disease was 49.9%, however there is no data available to allow calculation of specificity or predictive value ...
As for the not so fab updates, Ive had some rather negative doctor appointments lately of the freak the crap out of me nature. Cliffs notes version...CAT scans in April and June reflect that I have some enlarged lymph nodes in my (I like to say underarms but the doctors officially and eloquently refer to them as) armpits. Theyre not getting any bigger (yay!) but theyre not getting any smaller (boo.) so Im sort of in the middle of a big ole crap storm of advice right now. I do have an autoimmune disease (Sjogrens remember?) which could totally be causing the lymph node enlargement and would be no big deal because we already know about that. My rheumatologist has said that I could totally wait a few months and have another CAT scan to just make sure theyre not getting bigger, which would reflect the nothing more than the autoimmune crap theory. On the other hand, I met with a surgeon last week who told me that it was time for me to have a lymph node biopsy...which turned out to be just a ...

Hello!. First off, I cant tell you how amazing it has been to find a board focused not only on those diagnosed with NLPHL, but those who have had lymph node enlargement in their mesentery. From much of the reading Ive done and from what my oncologist has told me, its really not as common for this disease to present in the mesentery, so it has been reassuring to know that Im not the only one with this uncommon presentation.. A little background: Ive been dealing with illness and inconclusive symptoms for a few years now, the main two being extreme bouts of fatigue, and bouts of diarrhea that have become more frequent over the past three years. I also have had a slew of colds and seemed to be able to get sick quite easily, or at least easier than in the past. I only really started to feel incredibly sick in January of this year, with severe abdominal pain, nausea, lightheadedness, more fatigue, and more intense bouts of diarrhea paired with bouts of constipation. I do have a history of GI ...
