GONZALEZ DEL VALLE GONZALEZ, Zulema et al. Kikuchi-Fujimori's disease: A case report. Rev cubana med [online]. 2004, vol.43, n.2-3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-302X.
The case of a 21-year-old female patient with adenic febrile picture of 3 months of evolution that simulated initially the diagnosis of an HIV infection or of an adenitis in the course of infectious disease that motivated the use of antibiotic therapy by endovenous route, was presented. The diagnosis of Kikuchi Fujimoto's disease was confirmed by histological study with aspiration puncture of the cervical ganglion.The spontaneous favorable evolution , which supports the self-limited character of the entity, was underlined. Emphasis was made on the need and importance of a diagnostic judgement and medical thinking in the search of this affection aimed at avoiding unncessary diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
