  • 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)
  • On 20 October 2008 Simonovsky Court of Moscow approved continuing pre-trial detention of Alexanyan despite his grave illnesses (he had cancer, tuberculosis and AIDS and his spleen was surgically removed). (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)
  • deterioration
  • 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).

  • neck
  • Ultrasonography revealed an irregular hypoechoic nodule with calcifications, measuring 1 cm in diameter in the thyroid and multiple enlarged lymph nodes along the jugular chain of the neck. (kjim.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)
  • Lymph nodes or lymph glands are small soft structures, round in shape, that are located throughout your body, mainly in the head and neck region. (woundcaresociety.org)
  • How are neck pain and swollen lymph nodes related? (woundcaresociety.org)
  • Discomforts and aches in the neck area are not directly guilty for swollen nodes. (woundcaresociety.org)

  • bovis
  • M. tuberculosis is part of a complex that has at least 9 species: M. tuberculosis sensu stricto, M. africanum, M. canetti, M. bovis, M. caprae, M. microti, M. pinnipedii, M. mungi, and M. orygis. (wikipedia.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)
  • known
  • Sir Harold Jalland Stiles KBE FRCS FRCSE FRSE (21 March 1863 - 19 April 1946) was a British surgeon who was known for his research into cancer and tuberculosis and for treatment of nerve injuries. (wikipedia.org)
  • unusual
  • First discovered in 1882 by Robert Koch, M. tuberculosis has an unusual, waxy coating on its cell surface primarily due to the presence of mycolic acid. (wikipedia.org)
