The behaviour of subepicardial lymph nodes in chronic Chagas' disease



The behaviour of subepicardial lymph nodes in chronic Chagas' disease



Revista Goiana de Medicina 26(1/2): 43-46



The hearts of 55 chagasic patients were studied at autopsy. The subepicardial lymph nodes were enlarged in 8 (33%) of 30 who had died with congestive heart failure, in 15 (75%) of 20 who had died suddenly and in none of 5 patients without symptoms and 10 non-chagasic controls.
