  • human
  • In a retrospective analysis, paradoxical deterioration of lymph node tuberculosis in human immunodeficiency virus-uninfected patients was common, occurring in 25 (23%) of 109 patients after treatment had been given for a median of 46 days (interquartile range, 21-139 days) and persisting for a median of 67.5 days (interquartile range, 34-111 days).

  • patients
  • This case highlights the fact that in some patients, analysis of the aqueous may not provide any clue to the confirmation of an active tubercular choroidal granuloma and an association between splenic tuberculosis and choroidal tubercles has never been reported in the past. (springeropen.com)
  • common

  • spleen
  • Other findings in the abdomen such as miliary microabscesses in the liver or spleen, splenomegaly, splenic or lymph node calcification, inflammatory thickening of the terminal ileum and caecum, patulous I-C junction and lowattenuation lymphadenopathy may help suggest tuberculosis as the etiology of diffuse peritoneal disease. (wikipedia.org)

  • In animals, Y. pseudotuberculosis can cause tuberculosis-like symptoms, including localized tissue necrosis and granulomas in the spleen, liver, and lymph nodes. (wikipedia.org)
  • outbreaks
  • We show here, by whole-genome sequencing, that most strains collected from February 2010 through March 2013, and associated with 2 outbreaks of lymph node tuberculosis in children, belong to a unique epidemic clone within M. canettii . (cdc.gov)
  • We report the isolation, since 2010, of 21 new strains of M. canettii in Djibouti, of which 7 were associated with 2 lymph node TB outbreaks in children. (cdc.gov)
  • Typing of strains is useful in the investigation of tuberculosis outbreaks, because it gives the investigator evidence for or against transmission from person to person. (wikipedia.org)

  • In sonographic imaging, (A) there is an irregular shaped hypoechoic nodule with internal calcifications at the mid pole (white arrow) and (B) multiple enlarged lymph nodes, ranging from 0.5 to 1 cm along the jugular chain of the neck. (kjim.org)
  • The question we will try to answer is whether neck pain is one of the causes for swollen lymph nodes. (woundcaresociety.org)

  • metastatic
  • Lymph node structures around metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma with psammoma bodies are preserved (inset: H&E, ×200). (kjim.org)
  • Synchronous dual occurrence of tuberculosis and metastatic carcinoma is often confusing for clinicians, because its presentation is rare. (kjim.org)
  • swollen
  • Computerized tomography was performed after starting medication, and it revealed few lymph nodes that remained swollen. (kjim.org)
  • Surgeons won't practice opening lymph nodes that are swollen due to tuberculosis but sometimes they have to draw out some of the fluid with a syringe in order to detect the origin of swelling. (woundcaresociety.org)

  • If nodes detect something foreign passing through them such as a bacterium or a cancer cell they will swell up. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • Spurred into action, the DC picks up the antigen and speeds to a lymph node, where it sticks tightly to a helper T cell and presumably induces an immune response. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the lymph nodes, DCs mince the engulfed pathogen and then express the pathogen clippings as antigen on their cell surface by coupling them to a special receptor known as a major histocompatibility complex (MHC). (wikipedia.org)
