Tuberculous cervical lymphadenopathy
  1. J. F. Newcombe


    Forty-five cases of tuberculous cervical lymphadenopathy have been treated by a combination of early surgery and long-term chemotherapy. The majority of these patients have been immigrants of Asiatic origin.

    The posterior cervical group of nodes has been the most commonly involved. The site of primary infection was not identified.

    Histological examination of biopsy material proved the most reliable diagnostic method.

    Possible alternative methods of managing these cases are discussed.
