LOPEZ GONZALEZ, Joaquín et al. Lymph node tuberculosis in a young adult. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.9, pp.1-5. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case of 34 year-old prisoner is reported, who lived in a rural area and was attended by pulmonologists because of chronic feverishness, asthenia, weight loss, loss of appetite and painless enlargement in the right lateral region of the neck. Complementary tests revealed lymphadenopathies in porta of liver and epigastrium. Cervical node biopsy revealed tuberculous caseous necrosis, thus diagnosing as lymph node tuberculosis with involvement of superficial and deep lymph node chains; an infrequent disease with these characteristics in the territory.

Keywords : lymph node tuberculosis; lymphadenopathy; cervical node; caseous necrosis; pulmonology.
